Blood Brothers

(July 09, 2012)

Review by Tracey

This week I saw 'Blood Brothers' at the Opera House, Manchester. It is a very dramatic show, more of a play with music. A very strong story line, that cleverly jumps the audience through 2 decades on the streets of Liverpool, following <BLOG_BREAK>the lives of two lads. Clever scenery and staging keeps the performance flowing  

The cast included Maureen Nolan as the mother and Marti Pellow at the narrator. Both used their singing talents to great effect, and even managed to keep up the scouse accent that has to run though the whole show. I have to mention Sean Jones who plays one of the main characters, Mickey. As the evening moves on he has to start as an 8 yr old and work his way through adolescence, teenage romance and depression.  

I have seen the show before many years ago and preferred that more, but I think that is because the impact of the show is more the first time you see it. However, I really did enjoy this version and can recommend it if you want a dramatic, hard hitting show.
