BLOOD BROTHERS

This summer the Teen Theater will be performing, Blood Brothers, as their summer musical. The musical, written by Willy Russell, won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Musical in 1988 and later won a Tony Award in 1993. The musical is a haunting rags to riches tragedy of our times. A woman with numerous children to support surrenders one of her new born twins to the childless woman she cleans for. The boys grow up streets apart, never learning the truth but becoming firm friends and falling in love with the same girl. One prospers while the other falls on hard times. A narrator warns that a price has to be paid for separating twins: the lives of the blood brothers. The musical has 5 Male leading roles and 3 Female Leading roles and multiple roles in the chorus.
