"Tell me it's not true. Say it's just a story..."
Blood Brothers, by the author of Educating Rita and Shirley Valentine, is a haunting rags to riches tragedy of our times. A woman with numerous children to support surrenders one of her newborn twins to the childless woman. The boys grow up streets apart, never learning the truth but becoming firm friends and falling in love with the same girl. One prospers while the other falls on hard times. Superstition says there is price to to be paid for secretly separating twins: blood brothers die on the day they find out they are related.
"A genuine crowd pleaser...Blood Brothers remains a one-of-a-kind show...and no musical theater fan should fail to experience it." - Theater Week
