Blood Brothers Musical Review 

Starring Lyn Paul, Written by Willy Russell, the legendary Blood Brothers tells the captivating and moving tale of twins who, separated at birth, grow up on opposite sides of the tracks, only to meet again with fateful consequences.
Songs featured includes Bright New Day, Marilyn Monroe and the emotionally charged hit Tell Me It’s Not True.
My Thoughts
Given that I had never heard of Blood Brothers, I hadn’t read the synopsis, so I assumed it was about two brothers in the war, who were separated at birth.
the scene was set sadness was upon us two dead men laying on the floor, a blond lady crying and an older lady screaming the lyrics say it isn’t so!

Lyn Paul Blood Brothers

I have never been to such a funny, compassionate and heartfelt show! I had a lump in my throat, the way life was back then contraception, babies unruly children
Lyn Paul did a fantastic rendition of Mrs Johnstones part was full of emotion she played the part as if it was her, moving, inspiring and a beautiful singer.
Dean Chisnall as the narrator was fantastic, amazing voice singing ‘shoes upon the table.’
Mickey played by Sean Jones was a cheeky endearing little lad, it was a lovely way how we watched him grow, and then at the end to see him recoil from his former-self gave such a poignant reminder at how life can change so quickly and how fragile people can become.

overall I was amazed and gripped with this show I was hoping for a nicer outcome.

    I watched Blood Brothers a few years ago and the storyline just blew me away. It was magical.

    I watched a version of this play in a Canadian theatre about twenty years ago. Such a wonderful story!
