Have you seen the musical (not the movie) "Sister Act"? If so, you may be able to help me.

My Italian girlfriend has a friend (call her S) who went to see the musical "Sister Act" in Milano, translated into Italian. She was upset to hear some reference to St. Stephen (San Stefano) being killed by Jews. Upon complaining to the management, she was told that they simply translated the original script. S was incredulous, and asked my girlfriend to ask me if the reference is really in the English version of the musical. It's certainly not in the movie — I found a transcript of the movie dialog, and it nowhere contains any of the words Stephen, Jews, or (a bit surprisingly) Saint. But I couldn't find anything about the musical. If you have seen the musical, and have a fair opinion of your ability to remember the dialog, can you please confirm or deny this for me?
