When it closes, Bill Kenwright’s production of Willy Russell’s musical will have played over 10,000 performances in London, making it the third longest-running musical ever to play the West End.
The musical, which is set in Liverpool, tells the "tale of the Johnstone twins, who are separated at birth and later reunited by a twist of fate."
The London cast currently features Vivienne Carlyle as Mrs. Johnstone, Philip Stewart as Narrator, Mark Rice Oxley as Mickey, Paul Christopher as Eddie, Abigail Jaye as Mrs. Lyons and Louise Clayton as Linda.
Blood Brothers will continue to play all around the U.K. into 2013 and beyond.
A spokesperson for Bill Kenwright Ltd. said in a statement, “This is the end of a chapter, but by no means the end of Blood Brothers.”
