Blood Brothers to end West End run

Date Posted: 07/08/2012

One of the West End’s longest running musicals, Blood Brothers, is scheduled to end its current London run at the Phoenix Theatre on Saturday 27th October.

Bill Kenwright’s production of Willy Russell’s tale of the Johnstone twins, who are separated at birth and later reunited by a twist of fate, will have played over 10,000 performances in London.

The great British musical

Described as one of the greatest musicals of all time, Blood Brothers has triumphed across the globe, scooping up no less than four Best Musical awards in London and seven Tony Award nominations on Broadway.

The journey continues

No stranger to change, the show started as a school play, performed by a Liverpool comprehensive school in 1981.

It opened at the Liverpool Playhouse in 1983 and transferred to the Lyric Theatre for a short run. It was then taken on by producer Bill Kenwright who opened a new production at the Albery Theatre (now the Noel Coward) in 1988 to great acclaim, transferring it to the larger Phoenix Theatre three years later. It has also enjoyed success on Broadway and across America.

Blood Brothers will continue to play all around the UK into next year and beyond.
