Blood Brothers Review

Willy Russell’s Blood Brothers is a rare musical performance of an outstanding 2 hours at the intimate Hayes Theatre. The lead role Helen Dallimore as Mrs Johnstone has the sweetest voice and has an underlying likeness of Marilyn Monro.

The narrator, Michael Cormick is another stand out performer. With his mysterious and mischievous smile, he cheekily sings the repetitious “The Devils got your number”.

Blood Brothers is unique production as it doesn’t have any dancing, the musical score ranges from Broadway to rock by the four piece backing band and the success of the production entices the audience immerse themselves in the story of Mrs Johnson and her life.

Produced by Enda Markey, this is a strictly limited season and is strongly recommended to watch before its gone. (MS)
