Raven-Symoné on Slipping Into Sister Act

March 26, 2012

She’s been a TV star since she was three years old, and now Raven-Symoné is taking on a new challenge, making her Broadway debut as aspiring disco-diva Deloris Van Cartier in Sister Act. The decidedly un-diva-like Symoné got her start as a youngster on hit sitcom The Cosby Show, and went on to star in Hangin’with Mr. Cooper and headline her own Disney Channel show That’s So Raven, TV movies The Cheetah Girls and The Cheetah Girls 2 and most recently the ABC Family series State of Georgia. The actress has always been a singer, as well, and between screen stints she has released four studio albums. Broadway.com chatted with Raven-Symoné about her upcoming Rialto debut, her love for Julie Andrews and Janet Jackson, distaste for drama and what she’s loving (and hating!) about life in New York.
