Lyn Paul reprises role in Blood Brothers at the Hippodrome

Solihull Editorial 7th Oct, 2016 Updated: 21st Oct, 2016

LYN Paul says performing in Blood Brothers again is like greeting an old friend – but still terrifying.

The actress is joining the cast to perform as Mrs Johnson in Willy Russel’s legendary musical which is set to run at the Birmingham Hippodrome from Monday 10 to Saturday 22 October.

Lyn – a former member of The Seekers – will reprise the role of one of the show’s lead characters after a career which has seen her previously play the same part on and off for some five years.

She said: “It’s two and a half years since I last did it, so it is like greeting an old friend – but terrifying at the same time.

“I will treat it like a new show. Obviously it’s easier because I do know what I’m doing and because it is so well directed. When I first started it was directed by Bill and also Bob Tomson, so all those notes I have I’ve still got written down and a lot of that will come back to me because I think the way they directed it is just second to none. I’m desperately looking forward to going back and bringing that with me.”

Blood Brothers tells the moving tale of twins who, separated at birth, grow up on opposite sides of the tracks, only to meet again with fateful consequences.
