Blood Brother back for two-week run

Widely regarded as the ‘most popular British musical of all time,’ the worldwide smash hit Blood Brothers returns to the Grand Opera House stage tonight (Tuesday) for a two-week run.

Often described as the Liverpudlian West Side Story, Blood Brothers tells the captivating and moving tale of twins Mickey and Edward who, separated at birth, grow up on opposite sides of the tracks, only to meet again with tragic consequences.

Shrouded in superstition and sadness, it is a story of a class divide that breaks through blood and kin.

The superb score includes ‘Bright New Day’, ‘Marilyn Monroe’ and the emotionally charged hit ‘Tell Me Its Not True’ with Maureen Nolan reprising her role as the tragic Mrs Johnstone.

Currently enjoying its 14th year in the West End, few musicals have received quite such acclaim in recent years, with Willy Russell’s extraordinary story continuing to enjoy standing ovations at every performance.

Blood Brothers runs at the Grand Opera House from Tuesday, 27 March, to Saturday, 7 April, with both matinee and evening shows available.

Tickets are priced between £8.50 and £37.00 and can be purchased from the Box Office in the theatre, online at or by calling 028 9024 1919.
