Did you hear the tale of the Johnstone twins?
It has just been announced that there will be a short three week run of Blood Brothers the Musical opening in Melbourne from July 16.Tickets go on sale on the 7th of May, so get in early as it's strictly a limited season. The Sydney season was sold out nightly, and received rave reviews, so it's a production you don't want to miss.

The slick production is fun yet mesmerising, and the cast includes Bobby Fox, well known for his long run in Jersey Boys, among many other television and stage performances.

The story of twins separated at birth who live very different lifestyles, and the outcomes that follow as a result, is fascinating and emotionally charged.

The show stealers however, for me, with both the catchiest songs and fabulous voices are Michael McCormick as the eerie Narrator or the voice of fate tolling ill omens, who flicks seamlessly into other comic roles and then back again with ease. Helen Dallimore is exceptional, with a great voice and a humorous charm that makes the heartfelt tragedy mesmerizing.

The show is funny, highly entertaining and the story engrossing, like an Greek tragedy where you watch a story slowly unravel with foreboding, towards a previously announced outcome.
