Hanley’s Regent Theatre plays host to smash hit West End musical, The Commitments, based around a group of Irish musicians that want to put the soul back into Dublin.

Art Blood Brothers - Lyn Paul as Mrs Johnstone (previous cast production)

Blood brothers, created by Willy Russell completely changed my opinion on musical theatre. The world famous musical came to the Birmingham Hippodrome from the 10th-22nd of October 2016.

Blood Brothers was a whole new experience for me, I didn’t really no what to expect from the theatre. The last time I recall going to a theatre I was a child, watching a cheesy pantomime performance. I guess I expected something similar from Blood brothers and was left mind blown in return.
