Marti Pellow brushes up on his Liverpudlian accent for a return to Willy Russell’s acclaimed urban fable, Blood Brothers, that comes to Aylesbury Waterside Theatre next month.
The former pop star is now a firm favourite with theatre audiences, recently completing an extensive national tour and West End run of Evita.
Pellow is the Narrator, a role he played previously in the West End. He’ll be joined be Maureen Nolan, who returns to the musical as the tragic Mrs Johnstone.
Hailed as one of the best musicals of all time, Blood Brothers has triumphed across the globe.
This epic tale of Liverpool life ran in London’s West End for 24 years and exceeded 10,000 performances. It is one of only three musicals ever to achieve that milestone.
Scooping up four awards for best musical in London and seven Tony Award nominations on Broadway, Blood Brothers is unmissable and unbeatable.
Blood Brothers tells the moving story of twin boys separated at birth, only to be reunited by a twist of fate and a mother’s haunting secret.
The memorable score includes A Bright New Day, Marilyn Monroe and the emotionally charged hit Tell Me It’s Not True.
Maureen Nolan has played Mrs Johnstone in Blood Brothers in the West End and on tour to critical acclaim. She was the fourth Nolan sister to play the role, earning them entry in to the Guinness Book of Records.
Blood Brothers runs from Feb 23-28 – and don’t forget your tissues!
