Blood Brothers - singer Lyn Paul as Mrs Johnstone (previous cast production) (2) - Copy (2) (1)

Legendary singer Lyn Paul returns to the iconic role of Mrs Johnstone for one final time in Bill Kenwright’s smash hit musical Blood Brothers which arrives at Crewe Lyceum in November.

As part of a UK tour, the globally-acclaimed masterpiece tells the moving story of twin boys separated at birth, and returns to Crewe Lyceum Theatre from November 5-9.

Having first playing the role in 1997 and on numerous tours, Lyn played Mrs Johnstone in the final West End performances at the Phoenix Theatre in 2012.

She has also starred in the UK tour of Cabaret in 2013 as Fraulein Schneider, in Boy George’s musical Taboo and in Footloose – the Musical.

Lyn said: “I am beyond thrilled to be returning to Blood Brothers in this iconic role.

“I’m honoured to have been given the opportunity to undertake this “Farewell Tour” by my good friend, Bill Kenwright.

“It’s such a privilege to be able to play Mrs Johnstone one final time.”

Lyn rose to fame in the early 1970s as a member of the New Seekers.

She was the featured vocalist on their 1972 Eurovision Song Contest entry, Beg, Steal or Borrow and lead vocalist on the 1974 number one hit You Won’t Find Another Fool Like Me.

The group’s biggest hit I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing, was adapted from an advertising jingle for Coca-Cola, which sold more than 20 million copies and remains one of the 100 best-selling singles in the UK.

Blood Brothers, written by award-winning playwright Willy Russell, has triumphed across the globe, scooping up no fewer than four awards for Best Musical in London and seven Tony Award nominations on Broadway.

This epic tale of Liverpool life centres around twin boys separated at birth, only to be reunited by a twist of fate and a mother’s haunting secret.

The memorable score includes A Bright New Day, Marilyn Monroe and the emotionally charged hit Tell Me It’s Not True.

Tickets are available for Blood Brothers from or by calling the Box Office on 01270 368242.
