The Week on Stage: From Sister Act to 101 Dalmatians

A guide to the week’s theatre

‘101 Dalmatians’, ‘Sister Act’ and ‘Chasing Hares’ (Mark Senior/Manuel Harlan/Isha Shah)

Two classic films get the musical treatment this week, with varying degrees of success. Beverley Knight and Jennifer Saunders shine in Sister Act, while a new all-singing 101 Dalmatians doesn’t quite hit the spot. Elsewhere, we checked out Chasing Hares at the Young Vic, a new play from Sonali Bhattacharyya.

Join us next week for the verdict on South Pacific at Sadler’s Wells and All of Us at the National Theatre.
