Following sell-out seasons in the US, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and Japan, the international smash-hit musical Blood Brothers has returned to the Wyvern and tickets are on sale for shows that end on Saturday 15 March.
Hailed as one of the best musicals of all time, Blood Brothers has triumphed across the globe. Scooping up no less than four awards for best musical in London and seven Tony Award nominations on Broadway, she show is simply unmissable and unbeatable.
Blood Brothers tells the captivating and moving story of Mickey and Eddie – 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.
Mark Hutchinson as Eddie and Sean Jones in the role of Mickey give tremendously convincing and heartfelt performances as the separated boys whilst Maureen Nolan pulls at the heart strings as their mother.
Mark Hutchinson’s long association with Blood Brothers has seen him playing Eddie in the West End, on tour, in Toronto and on Broadway, where he won the Drama Desk Award for Best Featured Actor in a Musical.
Maureen has been singing with her sisters since she was nine years old. Together they became one of Europe’s first girl bands – The Nolans. The Nolans’ success is legendary, including phenomenal record sales worldwide, particularly in Japan where they’ve sold more records than The Beatles
Maureen 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.
Before the run started she said: “It’s so lovely to be back in Swindon, we always have a great time there. The audiences are so appreciative and we are always made to feel very welcome there by everyone.”
