Blood Brothers now taking bookings to 1 March 2008

Willy Russell's Blood Brothers has a new 6 month booking period - tickets now on sale to 1 March 2008 at the Phoenix Theatre

Of all the “mega hit” long running musicals currently in the West End Blood Brothers is unique in that this second incarnation opened at the Albery Theatre on 28th July 1988, after the original production had failed to score a West End success at the Lyric Theatre, three years previously in 1985.

It is directed by Bob Tomson and Bill Kenwright. The design is by Marty Flood and the musical director is Rod Edwards.

The cast currently includes Helen Hobson (Mrs Johnstone), Steven Houghton (Narrator), Jay Roberts (Mickey), Joe Fredericks (Eddie), Joanne Zorian (Mrs Lyons), Debbie Eden (Linda), Stephen Pallister (Mr Lyons), Michael Southern (Sammy), Adam Tedder (PC/Teacher), Simon Turner (Perkins), Amy O’Neill (Donna Marie), Alex Harland (Bus Conductor), Emma Nowell (Brenda), Michael Everest (Neighbour).

Bill Kenwright picked up the rights to the musical in 1987, and a re-vamped Blood Brothers returned to the West End the following year. It was the first West End revival to be nominated for the Best Musical Revival Olivier Award within two years of winning the Original Best Musical production! It transferred from the Albery to the Phoenix four years later in 1991, where it remains today.

The story concerns a pair of twins from Liverpool who are separated at birth. Later in life their paths cross in friendship and anger.
