Blood Brothers musical on stage at Derby

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.

Few musicals have received quite such acclaim as this multi-award winning show and you can see it at Derby Theatre from October 14-19.

Bill Kenwright’s production surpassed 10,000 performances in London’s West End, one of only three musicals ever to achieve that milestone. 

It has been affectionately christened the Standing Ovation Musical.

The score includes Bright New Day, Marilyn Monroe and the emotionally charged hit Tell Me It’s Not True.

Lyn Paul, who first rose to fame in the early 70s as a member of the New Seekers, returns to the show for her farewell tour in the iconic role of Mrs Johnstone, which she first made her own in London’s West End.
