Blood Brothers on Broadway 1994

Blood Brothers 1994 Broadway Playbill

Still going through old Playbills. Blood Brothers was my final show on my 1994 trip to New York. We saw four shows in all that trip: Carousel, Miss Saigon, Kiss of the Spider Woman, and Blood Brothers.

Carole King was playing Mrs. Johnstone at the time. Adrian Zmed was the narrator. Kerry Butler made her Broadway debut in the chorus. Susan Tilson, whom I loved as Eponine in the national tour of Les Miserables went on as Mrs. Lyons.

Odd memory. Some annoying guy sitting next to me kept cracking up at Carole King’s line deliveries. Not sure if he was thoroughly enjoying her performance or ridiculing it.

This was presented at the Music Box theater which I remember thinking was being quite beautiful.
