In London's West End, Blood Brothers is a legendary show, having played an incredible 10,000+ performances over 24 years. Now the megahit musical from Willy Russell (Educating Rita, Shirley Valentine) comes to the Ames Center's Black Box Theatre. The secret of the show's success may be in its inescapably dramatic premise. Meet two boys, Mickey and Eddie -- one rich, the other poor -- who are, regardless, the best of friends growing up in Liverpool in the '60s. But little do they know how close they truly are, as they're actually fraternal twins who were separated at birth.

The power of her prophecy and the strength of the brothers' friendship are both tested when Mickey and Eddie fall for the same girl. Learn More
