The Blues Brothers – Live (Nicholas Abrams And Richard Williamson Present)

By | Published on Monday 7 August 2017

You gotta “shake your tail feathers” (the cast will show you how) to get the most out of this highly interactive, exhilaratingly effervescent Blues Brothers film tribute show, but if you do the rewards will be immense (though admittedly very sweaty!). Prefer just clapping along? Well, watching the black suited, hatted and shade wearing stars dance with a vigour that makes your eyes pop is also very rewarding. This non-stop, jaw-achingly funny evening has a great band playing all the rhythm and blues tunes this baby boomer can take. Audience, band and cast kept the frenzied dancing going all night, while my heart sang along with the harmonica and walking bass line.

C, until 28 Aug.
