Disadvantages: none as far as im concerned
I love going to the theatre and when my friend invited me to see Blood Brothers i jumped at the chance, especially as i'd heard so many people going on about how good it was and after seeing it, i'd have to agree with what everyone else was saying.
I love a show that gets you completely wrapped up in what is going on and draws you in and makes you want or need to know what is going to happen next, and Blood Brothers is definitely one of these shows in my opinion.
It is a musical based on the Johnston family, namely the mother whose husband has left her and she is left raise a house full of children, including the twins she has just given birth to. Not thinking she can cope, she does something that sets the whole show up and leads to the dramatic conclusion. It starts with how it ends and shows us how it gets there and what does actually happen at the end.
The songs are very good and powerful and catchy and the acting is extremely good.
I have been to see this show twice and i would definitely see it a third time. The second time i saw it i was quite close to the front and seeing it that close up just makes you feel more involved in the show.
It is definitely one of those shows that you have to see at least once. The plot is very good and something that hasn't been done before. I would reccommend to everyone to see this show. Try it ans see what you think.
Summary: a great powerful, engaging show
