DESPITE being a theatre reviewer for the past three decades I have never managed to see Willy Russell’s Blood Brothers, an omission I was delighted to make good at Chequer Mead on Wednesday. And I was not disappointed. The Rising Stars Adults Theatre production was the original play, rather than the subsequent musical version, and […]

Hailed as one of the best musicals of all time, Blood Brothers, written by award-winning playwright WILLY RUSSELL has triumphed across the globe. Scooping up no less than four awards for best musical in London and seven Tony Award nominations on Broadway, Blood Brothers is simply unmissable and unbeatable. This epic tale of Liverpool life ran in London’s West End for 24 years and exceeded 10,000 performances. It is one of only three musicals ever to achieve that milestone.
Willy Russell is undeniably one of this country’s leading contemporary dramatists. His countless credits include Educating Rita and Shirley Valentine. Educating Rita, originally commissioned by the Royal Shakespeare Company, enjoyed a two year run in the West End and was made into a movie starring Michael Caine and Julie Walters. Shirley Valentine also made the move from stage to screen in an enormously popular film starring Pauline Collins and Tom Conti.
Following a successful spring season of sell-out shows, MARTI PELLOW is back by popular demand to continue his role as Narrator for the autumn leg of BLOOD BROTHERS, coming to The Hawth in October.Also returning to the show will be MAUREEN NOLAN, who will reprise her role as the tragic Mrs Johnstone.
Blood Brothers is directed by Bob Tomson and Bill Kenwright with design by Andy Walmsley. Dan Samson is the sound designer. Tom De Keyser is the musical supervisor and Kelvin Towse is the musical director.
