A thoroughly enjoyable 'Blood Brothers' performance and deserving of the standing ovation that has compelled me to write this...I don't ever do this. All of life's range of emotions in one show. What a story!! From innocence, to trusting, to caring, to song, to gentle smiles, to loud laughter, to deep thoughts, to full blown tears......Children at play, adolescence, bonding, unbonding, conscience, straying from the path, class divides, selfishness, unselfishness, happiness, sadness, tears ...adult frailties coming to the fore ...human nature! Brilliant acting, choreography and timing. Dynamic performance from all of 'the team' despite having to cover each other's roles due to illness on the night. Best Mickey ever.
