Blood Brothers - Broadway
First opening in 1988, Blood Brothers ran for 24 years, earning the honor as the 3rd longest running work of musical theatre in the West End District of London.
Blood Brothers is the story of Mickey and Edward, two twin brothers who are separated at birth and raised in different homes. Eventually they become best friends of the closest kind, "blood brothers". However, the fact that they are related is concealed by their mothers who strive to keep them apart for superstitious beliefs.
Their lives continue to intertwine, although the deep divisions between the privileged life of Edward and Mickey's poverty-stricken existence are apparent. As adults, they are caught up in a love triangle with Mickey's childhood sweetheart Linda. This story is told with great humor as the kids grow up and delivers a powerful message with the help of a wonderful soft-rock score.
