The Commitments is a fantastically feel-good celebration of soul. Returning to tour the UK and Ireland five years after a phenomenally successful, record-breaking run in London’s West End and subsequent sell-out tour. The Commitments is based on the BAFTA award-winning film classic.
With over 20 soul classics performed live on stage including: Night Train, Try A Little Tenderness, River Deep, Mountain High, In The Midnight Hour, Papa Was A Rolling Stone, Save Me, Mustang Sally, I Heard It Through The Grapevine, Thin Line Between Love and Hate, Reach Out, Uptight, Knock On Wood, I Can’t Turn You Loose and more! A guaranteed fabulously fun night out you will simply never forget.
The Commitments musical has been adapted from the novel by Booker prize winning author Roddy Doyle himself and is directed by Andrew Linnie.
The Commitments is the story of Jimmy Rabbitte, a young working-class music fan, who shapes an unlikely bunch of amateur musicians and friends into an amazing live act, the finest soul band Dublin has ever produced. The humour kicks in as the band get to know each other and their instruments, and proceed through early rehearsals for their first gig. Just as they improve and begin to get a name for themselves, they combust. The backing singers are all getting off with the middle-aged horn legend, the singer has entered Eurovision and the saxophone player has dangerous leaning towards a jazz career.
