Blood Brothers to take centre stage in Chesterfield
Chesterfield is to stage its second West End production this year when the legendary BLOOD BROTHERS comes to the Winding Wheel in October.
Written by Willy Russell, 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. The superb score includes Bright New Day, Marilyn Monroe and the emotionally charged hit Tell Me It’s Not True.
Few musicals have received quite such acclaim as the multi-award winning BLOOD BROTHERS, and Bill Kenwright’s production, having recently celebrated its 23rd phenomenal year in London, continues to enjoy standing ovations at every devastating performance. Scooping up no less than four awards for best musical in London and seven Tony Award nominations on Broadway, BLOOD BROTHERS is simply unmissable and unbeatable. This epic tale of Liverpool life has been running in London’s West End, since July 1988 and touring the UK since 1995.
Councillor Nick Stringer, Executive Member for Leisure, Culture and Tourism said: “We’re delighted to announce the showing of BLOOD BROTHERS in Chesterfield which follows on the success of attracting the hit musical Joseph to the Winding Wheel.
"Bringing top class shows to Chesterfield is not only a great thing for people of all ages who get to see the very best in show business, it also helps to attract thousands of new people to Chesterfield theatres."
BLOOD BROTHERS will run from Monday 8th October – Saturday 13th October 2012 with performances at 7.30pm every day, plus matinee performances at 2.30pm on 10th and 13th October. Tickets can be booked at the Box Office Tel: 01246 345222
