Overview

This is the London revival cast recording of Willy Russell's weepy melodrama, originally released in England in 1988 at the time of the revival, and released in the U.S. in 1993 to commemorate the opening of the show on Broadway. Russell is steeped in '60s British pop music, and the show is full of catchy songs, although the contrived and dreary subject matter and the repetitiousness may drive some to distraction. Blood Brothers is more than a tearjerker; it suctions tears out of its audience with a vacuum cleaner. To be fair, there are many who love it for that, and even those who don't will have trouble not humming its score on the way out of the theater.

I recently saw this play in London and was sincerely amazed at how much I enjoyed it. The plot itself is a bit predictable, but the music, and the talent (of the actors I saw anyway.)made the show magnificent. I would recommend it to anyone, especially if you like Marilyn Monroe.
