DUST off your pork pie hat, dig out your shades and don those dancing shoes because The (All New) Original Tribute to The Blues Brothers is coming to the Lyceum Theatre.
After several smash-hit years on the international touring circuit, this all-new production presents all of the classic moments from the original hit West End show and more; including a brand new set, new twists, new moves, new songs - and freshly laundered suits!
Backed up by the three ‘Bluettes’ and one of Europe’s finest seven piece bands, ‘Jake and Elwood Blues’ will once again be donning their iconic hats, sunglasses and suits to bring to life a host of the duo’s most memorable hits including Shake A Tail Feather, Think, Respect, Gimme Some Loving, and the toe-tapping classic Everybody Needs Somebody To Love!.
This brand new reworking of the celebrated show is directed by Brad Henshaw; an established name on the international music stage who will also star in the show as Jake - one half of the Brothers Blue.
Following its humble premiere in a small seaside pub in Brighton in 1991, the show fast became a runaway success. It was swiftly snapped up by theatre producer David Pugh and film director David Leyland, who opened the show in the West End just six months later and won a BAFTA for Best New Musical.
Prepare to party like never before with the Blues Brothers for a night of the best music, moves, thrills and spills you’re likely to see this side of Chicago.
The (all new) Original Tribute to The Blues Brothers opens in Sheffield today (Tue 21) and runs until Sat 25. Tickets can be purchased from Sheffield Theatres Box Office in-person, by phone on 0114 249 6000 or online at sheffieldtheatres.co.uk and are priced from £18.00 - £27.00.
