Say it's just a story

AdvantagesA great play

DisadvantagesThe text alone isn't enough - go and see it!

"...the text objectively. Willy Russell's Blood Brothers is excellent when performed well on stage. Whilst reading the play will leave a more shallow impression, if it's the only exposure you're likely to get then it's worth the effort to read it. Over the last decade or two it has been accepted as an exam text and studied at GCSE level and it stands up well to scrutiny. The basic tale is that of twin brothers and their mother who is forced through ..." Read review

Good show but know what to expect

AdvantagesGood music, good story

Disadvantagesnothing really worth mentioning

"I'll be honest, Blood Brothers was not what I expected and that really threw me off for the whole thing and reduced my enjoyment! After speaking to various people beforehand about it, I got the impression that it was a more serious affair than it was. I was expecting to go in and see something more like Les Miserables rather than Spamalot! The show lasts about 3 hours (including an interval) and is in the Phoenix Theatre which is located on ..."

Superstition mixed with humor.

AdvantagesCharacters and the jokes in it.

DisadvantagesMusic, and some of the storyline is slightly tedious.

"I went to see blood brothers at the theatre at christmas, and I thought the play was great. I had read Educating Rita in school, which I don't think is all that amazing, but I prefered this storyline. It's not only funny and amusing, but sad and upsetting. It really touches all your emotions. The basic storyline is about a women who gives up one of the twins she has to the rich women she works with. She has to give up her child, because she can't ..."

shoes upon the table

AdvantagesIts fantastic, so many emotions

Disadvantagesnone, there are no disadvantages

""Blood Brothers" is the best play i have ever seen or read. I have seen the play performed 7 times and every time was as moving, hillarious, saddening and exciting as the last. When i saw the play for the first time, i wasn't prepared for the masive change of emotions i was about to experience. The play is about two twins seperated at birth as their mother (Mrs Johnston) cannot afford to keep them both. She sells one of the twins (Eddy) to ..." Read review
