Blood Brothers

Blood BrothersT057685647
Musical melodrama set in Liverpool about twins separated at birth and the effects on their personalities as they grow up of 'nature' and 'nurture'. A poor family, already with kids, is blessed with twins, but they can't cope. The mother cleans at a 'posh' house where they are desperate to have kids but can't and a deal is struck which no-one must know about. Despite the efforts of the new family the boys paths cross time and time again as they grow and one becomes 'bad' while the other is 'good'. Eventually they clash with tragic consequences. The musical is un-usual in having a "narrator" who helps to move the plot along.

Vic Mangan (15Feb17): I have grown up watching this musical since I was 13 and Con O'Neil was my first Mickey and I fell in love there and then in 1988 but tonight many shows and own experiences later I can honestly say that Sean Jones has given Con a run for his money! It was a given that Lyn Paul would be amazing hit for me the performance of Mickey and The Narrator are the deal breaker, and I was not disappointed Dean Chisnall was amazing and sometimes stole the show without saying a word a presence befitting to this role. An absolute pleasure to watch!
