Event details

Written by Willy Russell, the legendary Blood Brothers tells the captivating and moving tale of twins who, separated at birth, grow up on opposite sides of the tracks, only to meet again with fateful consequences.

Few musicals have received quite such acclaim as the multi-award winning Blood Brothers. Bill Kenwright’s production surpassed 10,000 performances in London’s West End, one of only three musicals ever to achieve that milestone. It has been affectionately christened the ‘Standing Ovation Musical’, as inevitably it ‘brings the audience cheering to its feet and roaring its approval’ (The Daily Mail).

The superb score includes Bright New DayMarilyn Monroe and the emotionally-charged hit Tell Me It’s Not True.

‘Exhilarating…One of the best musicals ever written’ Sunday Times

‘A triumphant evening… Unmissable and unbeatable’ The Spectator

‘Brings the audience cheering to its feet and roaring its approval’ The Daily Mail

★★★★★ ‘Dazzling’ Sunday Telegraph

★★★★★ ‘Terrific’ Sunday Express

‘Gritty, gripping, superb’ Mail On Sunday
