Blood Brothers at The Astoria Performing Arts Center

The Tony Nominated and Oliver Award Winning Best Musical BLOOD BROTHERS tells the tragic story of a mother who, unable to support her children, surrenders one of her newborn twins to a childless woman. Unaware that they are brothers, the boys grow up just streets apart in vastly different homes – one wealthy, the other poor. Despite their different upbringings, they become close friends. But when they fall in love with the same girl, their friendship is tested, and their fate sealed.

The musical debuted in 1983, winning the Olivier Award for Best New Musical. The recent West End revival was one of the longest-running musical productions in history; it opened in 1988, and ended its run on October 27, 2012, having played over 10,000 performances. The Broadway production opened in 1993 at the Music Box Theatre and closed in 1995 after 840 performances. The central role of Mrs. Johnstone has been played by, among others, Barbara Dickinson, Stephanie Lawrence, Kiki Dee, Petula Clark, Carole King, and Helen Reddy. The role of Mickey has been played by both Russell Crowe (in Australia) and David Cassidy (opposite his brother Shaun).

Tickets are $18, available online at www.apacny.org or by calling 888-596-1027. Tickets may also be purchased in-person at the Theatre Box Office, 30 minutes prior to the performance.
