GRAB your hat and put on them shades – the award-winning spectacular that is Europe’s biggest and best-loved production of the Blues Brothers is heading to Marvellous.
This show is a high-octane, adrenaline-pumping musical mash-up which has jump started the legacy of Jake and Elwood for a new generation with its modern twist on this cult classic and an energy and spirit that is impossible to resist.
Back with a brand new mission, The Chicago Blues Brothers are heading for Detroit – via Dinton – to take on some of the biggest and most loved Motown anthems along with all the Blue Brothers classics you know and love.
With hits from Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, Sam and Dave, James Brown, The Temptations, The Four Tops, the Jackson 5 and the Supremes this promises to be the biggest party show the UK has ever seen.
“One of the things I love about the show, which I’ve been doing for six years, is the variety of people who come out to see us,” said Chris Hindle who stars as Jake.
“We have a full live band with a very big sound which audiences love. This year we have toured in places like Switzerland and Hong Kong and are looking forward to Marvellous.”
The Chicago Blues Brothers is a joyous hoot, a musical riot, a juiced-up jamboree of the coolest, funkiest soul, blues and Motown hits performed with style, class and showmanship by a troupe of some of the finest entertainers working in modern musical theatre. The boys capture the sound, energy and persona that propelled the film to a cult status and still thrills audiences worldwide today.
Backed by the multi award winning CBB Band and the incredible Sweet Soul Sisters, a new stage set and state of the art full stage projection, you won’t be able to stand still.
Don’t forget those hats and shades!
