About the show:

Blood Brothers
Book, Music and Lyrics by Willy Russell
Directed by Garrick Dietze

Raised on opposite ends of the social spectrum in Thatcher-era England, best friends Eddie and Mickey have no idea that they are actually twins, and that their desperate mother may have doomed their lives to bitter tragedy. Did her choices set in motion a destiny they are all powerless to prevent? This celebrated musical by Willy Russell (author of Educating Rita and Shirley Valentine), ran continuously in London's West End for over 24 years!
