Musical 'Blood Brothers'


November 11, 1999|By J. Wynn Rousuck

The Vagabond Players is on a Willy Russell kick. The theater began the season with Russell's "Shirley Valentine," and tomorrow marks the opening of Russell's small-scale musical, "Blood Brothers."

A tale of twin brothers separated at birth, the show is directed by James Hunnicutt and stars Tom Burns and Steve Mitchell as the ill-fated twins; Liz Boyer plays their birth mother, Mrs. Johnstone. Both Boyer and Burns appeared in Cockpit-in-Court's production of the musical two summers ago, although Burns is now playing the other twin. Musical direction is by Robert A. Gee.

Show times at the Vagabonds, 806 S. Broadway, are 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays; 7 p.m. Dec. 5; and 2 p.m. Sundays, through Dec. 12. Tickets are $12. Call 410-563-9135.
