Editors Note
Note In this updating of 1947's THE BISHOP'S WIFE, a Baptist preacher unknowingly pays too much attention to his congregation, and not enough to his dedicated wife and son. Enter Dudley, a flirtatious, sharp-dressed angel, to help the couple build a new church and, not incidentally, reignite their marriage. Academy Award Nominations: Best Original Musical or Comedy Score.
Variety "...[A] likable, modern musical fairy tale....Director Marshall creates a very pretty, near postcard-perfect environment for this fantasy....[A] handsome piece with plenty of heart..." 12/09/1996
Chicago Sun-Times "...THE PREACHER'S WIFE is a sweet and good-hearted comedy about the holiday season..." 12/13/1996 p.41
