Former Blood Brothers cast members Lyn Paul, Warwick Evans, Mark Hutchinson, Jan Graveson and Sean Jones will return to the West End musical on October 29. The actors will close out the final weeks of the show, which will end its 24 year run on November 10 at the Phoenix Theatre.
Blood Brothers tells the moving tale of twins who, separated at birth, grow up on opposite sides of the tracks, only to meet again with tragic consequences.
Evans, an original cast member of the show, will return to the role of the Narrator. He also played the role on Broadway along with Hutchinson and Graveson. Paul made her debut as Mrs. Johnston 16 years ago. Jones will play Micky, with Harland taking on the role of the Postman.
The show first opened on July 28, 1988 at the Albery Theatre, then transferred to the Phoenix in 1991. Blood Brothers played Broadway's Music Box Theatre from April 14, 1993 through April 30, 1995, and earned six Tony nominations including Best Musical. The show features songs such as "Marilyn Monroe," "Bright New Day" and "Tell Me It's Not True." The show currently also stars Vivienne Carlyle as Mrs. Lyons, Kevin Pallister as Mr. Lyons, Michael Southern as Sammy, Matt Slack as Policeman/Teacher, Ashley Morgan as Brenda, Craig Anthony-Kelly as the Neighbor and Simon Turner as Perkins.
