One of the “Cosby Kids” — who appeared as a toddler on NBC’s long-running 1980s sitcom “The Cosby Show” — is headed to Broadway, Playbill reports.
Actress Raven-Symone, who joined “Cosby” at age 3 and appeared on the show’s last three seasons, has landed the Whoopi Goldberg role in the Broadway version of "Sister Act," the story reports. She will take over the part from Tony nominee Patina Miller.
Raven-Symone, who also starred in “That’s So Raven,” is slated for a six-month run.
The story of the Broadway show follows the plot of the film. According to producers: "When disco diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place cops are sure she won’t be found — a convent! Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and an uptight Mother Superior. Using her unique disco moves and singing talent to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community, but in doing so blows her cover. Soon the gang are giving chase, only to find themselves up against Deloris and the power of her new found Sister Hood."
Raven-Symone is a two-time Kids’ Choice Award winner for “That’s So Raven.”
