Blood Brothers set for five-night Bournemouth run
LIVERPUDLIAN playwright Willy’s Russell’s epic musical story Blood Brothers will appear at Bournemouth’s Pavilion Theatre from Tuesday 26th February to Saturday 2nd March.
The story revolves around twin brothers Mickey and Edward who are separated at birth and brought up in completely different environments in the city during the 1960’s.
Whilst Mickey is brought up with his seven older siblings by his struggling single mother, Mrs Johnstone, his twin brother, Edward, is raised as the only child of the wealthy Lyons family.
Mickey and Edward don’t meet each other until they’re seven years old, but immediately become best friends and blood brothers. The bond continues into adulthood but as they get older, the huge difference in their backgrounds eventually begins to pull them apart.
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. The superb score includes Bright New Day, Marilyn Monroe and the emotionally charged hit Tell Me It’s Not True.
Tickets are £21 to £35.25. For more information and bookings, visit www.bhlivetickets.co.uk or contact the box office on 0844 576 3000.
