The Blood Brothers are back in town
Award-winning musical Blood Brothers returns to the Leeds stage on March 28th. Opening at Leeds Grand Theatre, Willy Russell’s smash hit show will run until Saturday 2nd April.

Life in Liverpool

Widely considered one of the greatest musicals of all time, Blood Brothers has seen global success. The seven-time Tony Award nominated play is the epic story of twin brothers separated at birth, reunited in later life by a twist of fate.

Capturing the zeitgeist of the 60s and 70s in inner city Liverpool, the play is a favourite with audiences in the north of England. It ran successfully in London’s West End for 24 years, and is one of only three musicals to exceed 10,000 performances.

Lyn Paul reprises iconic role

Fans of the musical will be enthused to hear English pop singer and actress Lyn Paul will be reprising her role as Mrs Johnson. Paul first played the role in in a 1997 production, and most recently in the West End in 2012.

Joining Lyn on stage are Sean Jones as Mickey, Joel Benedict as Eddie, and Danielle Corlass as Linda. The sensational cast, dancing-in-the-aisles music and exceptional staging render this production unmissable.
