This coming season Broadway will see a nun on the run as "Sister Act" makes it way across the pond.

After enjoying record-breaking success in London, producer Whoopi Goldberg brings the divine musical comedy to the New York stage in the spring of 2011.

Based on the hit movie, "Sister Act" features a new score by eight-time Oscar winner Alan Menken. His credits include "The Little Mermaid," and "Beauty and the Beast."

Goldberg starred in the movie version and will appear with the London cast for a limited run beginning August 10.

No theater or casting has been announced for Broadway. The show's publicist isn't commenting on whether Goldberg will appear in the Broadway version.
