Former Spice Girl, Melanie C continues to star as Mrs Johnstone until 24 April.
This award winning (winning ‘Best Musical’ awards from Society of West End Theatres, Drama Magazine, Ivor Novello and Play and Players) musical tells the story of two twins who are separated at birth, but whose paths cross again when they are older. The musical is set in Liverpool and contains the song ‘Tell Me It’s Not True’.
Interestingly of all the long-running musicals currently in London, Blood Brothers is unique in that the current production, which originally opened at the Albery Theatre in 1988, is actually its second incarnation – the original production failed to score a West End success at the Lyric Theatre in 1983 (where it run for six months). The producer Bill Kenwright picked up the rights to the musical in 1987, and a re-vamped Blood Brothers returned to the West End the following year.
