Have your say

FORMER Wet Wet Wet star Marti Pellow is to star in Willy Russell’s smash hit musical Blood Brothers at the Lyceum Theatre.

The singer will be on stage in Sheffield from Monday, January 14, until Saturday, January 26.

Blood Brothers has triumphed across the globe, scooping four awards for best musical in London and seven Tony Award nominations in the US.

The show ran in London’s West End for 24 years and has been touring the UK since 1995.

Blood Brothers tells the story of twin boys separated at birth, only to be reunited by a twist of fate and a mother’s haunting secret. Songs include A Bright New Day, Marilyn Monroe and Tell Me It’s Not True.

Pellow, a veteran of theatre in the West End and on Broadway, stars as The Narrator.
