There are also a number of good comedy dramas which makes you laugh all the way. Many of these dramas are now available in dvds.
Bob obviously watched something else.
I saw Blood Brothers over 100 times, mostly at The Phoenix in the West End, and in many other parts of the country, including The Sunderland Empire.
When I went, Mrs Johnstone was always LYN PAUL, and she was brilliant in the role.
That`s why Bill Kenwright chose her, out of all the women who have ever led the cast, LYN PAUL is the undisputed definitive “Mrs J” of all time.
Bob, the show was not/is not terrible, it is gutsy, down to earth pure theatre. An incredible show, which needed little publicity, or big hit records in the pop charts. It has run, and continues to run all over the world, and it will return in triumph to the West End one day because it is real class. A giant amongst musicals…
