Opening No. 118: National touring production of “Sister Act”: In this expanded photo diary, we took a backstage tour, went to the opening-night party, and two mornings later got to hang out with cast member Kingsley Leggs, whom you may remember from his performance in the Denver Center Theatre Company’s long-extended tribute to John Denver called “Almost Heaven.” Leggs was also a cast member in “Violet” at the Arvada Center. In “Sister Act,” he plays bad-guy Curtis Jackson. But in real-life, nice guy Kingsley was amenable to making the painfully early morning rounds with local radio stations, and I got to tag along. Leggs appeared on KOOL 105 with Kris and Kelly, and later with KEZW’s Rick Crandall. “Sister Act” is the movie-turned-musical that Whoopi Goldberg made famous. It tells the story of Deloris Van Cartier, a wannabe diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a crime and the cops hide her in the last place anyone would think to look — a convent. Showtimes: 7:30 p.m. Tuesday-Fridays; 2 and 7:30 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays through Oct. 6 at the Buell Theatre in the Denver Performing Arts Complex, 14th and Curtis streets, 303-893-4100 or the denver center’s home page .
