Blood Brothers is coming home with an 11-day stay at the Liverpool Empire this September.
Willy Russell’s award-winning tale of nature verses nurture is one of the most celebrated musicals of the past 30 years and has been dubbed the ‘standing ovation musical’.
It was premiered at the Liverpool Playhouse in 1983 with Barbara Dickson in the role of Mrs Johnstone, who is forced by circumstance to give up one of her baby twins – with devastating results.
The tear-jerking musical includes the songs Bright New Day, Marilyn Monroe and the anthem Tell Me It’s Not True.
The Bill Kenwright Ltd tour currently stars Olivier Award-nominated West End veteran Lindzi Hateley as Mrs Johnstone, but no information about the Liverpool cast has yet been revealed.
Blood Brothers is at the Liverpool Empire from September 3-14. Tickets HERE
