65 of Hong Kong’s most talented young dancers, singers and actors will present an unforgettable reimagining of the acclaimed musical Blood Brothers. They will storm the stage to present a funny, captivating and heartbreaking musical. The show will be directed by Lindsey McAlister.
A little about the show:
The story… Twin brothers are separated at birth. One prospers, the other falls on hard times. They grow up to be friends then bitter enemies – living under the prophecy that the day they find out about their true relationship will be the last day of their lives.
A few words from the director, Lindsey McAlister … “We selected Blood Brothers because it is a powerfully written piece that moves audiences to laughter and tears, and because its enduring appeal makes it just as relevant today as it was over thirty years ago. On the surface, the show can come across as lighthearted and fun, but its conclusion is a stark reminder that dire situations do not call for desperate measures. In rehearsal, we explore themes that are integral to the piece, such as nature versus nurture. We also tie it to the lives of our young people, discussing how the income gap between wealth and poverty impacts society in Hong Kong. It’s been very encouraging to see how knowledgeable and thoughtful our young cast are, especially when it comes to expressing their concerns about young people who have fallen through the cracks of society.”
