INTERNATIONALLY acclaimed musical Blood Brothers is set to make a triumphant two-week return to the Midlands this October.

The smash hit stage show is coming to the Birmingham Hippodrome between Monday, October 10, and Saturday, October 22.

Blood Brothers tells the captivating and 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.

Hailed as one of the best musicals of all time, Blood Brothers, written by award-winning playwright Willy Russell, has triumphed across the globe – scooping up no fewer than four awards for best musical in London and seven Tony Award nominations on Broadway.

For the Hippodrome’s production, Lyn Paul returns to the iconic role of Mrs Johnstone, one she first played in 1997.

Lyn played the character in the final West End performances at the Phoenix Theatre in 2012, and has also starred in the UK tour of Cabaret in 2013 as Fraulein Schneider, in Boy George’s musical Taboo and in Footloose - the Musical.
