Blood Brothers is set for another spectacular UK tour this year, with its only announced Staffordshire and Cheshire date at Crewe’s Lyceum Theatre.
From March 15-19, Willy Russell’s famous production tells the captivating and moving story of twin boys separated at birth, only to be reunited by a twist of fate and a mother’s haunting secret.
Hailed as one of the best musicals of all time, Blood Brothers has triumphed across the globe scooping up no less than four awards for best musical in London and seven Tony Award nominations on Broadway.
When Mrs Johnstone, a young mother, is deserted by her husband and left to her own devices to provide for seven hungry children she takes a job as a housekeeper in order to make ends meet.
It is not long before her brittle world crashes around her when she discovers herself to be pregnant yet again – this time with twins!
In a moment of weakness and desperation, she enters a secret pact with her employer which leads inexorably to the show’s shattering climax.
A sensational cast, incredible show stopping music, remarkable staging and five star performances make Blood Brothers an enthralling night of entertainment.
Returning to the iconic role of Mrs Johnstone, Lyn Paul is no stranger to Blood Brothers. She she first played the role in 1997.
