Initially savaged by the US critics, the show nevertheless survived and eventually triumphed, going on to run for more than two years and garnering six Tony nominations.
C'est Stephanie Lawrence qui a inauguré la série en jouand Mrs Johnstone avant de laisser la place à Petula Clark.Presse : Making Miracles On Broadway
It is the miracle of Broadway. Six months after Bill Kenwright opened in New York to notices which should have guaranteed the show's closure within a week, the musical has now played 270 performances to 270 standing ovations and is taking more than £200,000 per week.
Even New York Times critic Frank Rich, whose review read like the kiss of death at the first night party, has moved to hold up Kenwright publicity as a heroic model of positive theatrical production.
And the woman at the centre of the continuing excitement on West 45th Street is our own Petula Clark. It was when she and pop star turned-actor David Cassidy took over the leading roles that the turnaround happened.
Ms Clark may be almost over-familiar here from her early days as a child actress and squeaky clean songstress, but in America she is regarded as a sophisticated star. Songs like Downtown and Don't Sleep In The Subway also spoke directly to US audiences.
"I've been asked to do Broadway musicals before, I've even been asked to choose my own show, which was very flattering."
She admits she very nearly did not make the trip with Blood Brothers . "I'd seen it in London. I liked it a lot but it's very Liverpool and that's not me. When I read about the reviews in New York I thought it was such a pity.
"The Bill asked me to come and do it. I said No right away. There seemed little chance of the show surviving. But my husband said perhaps Bill knew something I didn't know, like the word-of-mouth that was going around, so I started to think again." The happy ending has almost wiped out the pain she suffered with the West End failure three years ago of a musical she wrote herself, Someone Like You. "That really hurt but you have to put these things behind you. I learned one big lesson - not to compromise. Little by little I allowed it to slip away from me. Next time I'll know better and say my way is the right way. Just like Bill."
-London Evening Standard 1995
"'Blood Brothers' wipes me away, without fail, every time. Petula Clark is in thrilling vocal form. David Cassidy is a gutsy revelation."
-New York Newsday
"'Blood Brothers' is better than ever with David Cassidy and the incomparable Petula Clark. A Perfect marriage of performers and the parts they play."
"One of the best. A musical of gripping, chilling power."
-The Newhouse News Service
