Cameron - ★★★★1/2

"The Black Blues Brothers is a show of many chapters with each respective one containing evermore jaw-dropping stunts. The electric chemistry between the five brothers makes for a continual spectacle throughout the duration of the show despite the slightly slow start. The production has its eye widening numbers divided up sweetly with simple slapstick humour which tailors itself perfectly to the varied atmospheres created throughout the show. The daring stunts always manage to pull audience members to edge of their seats, baffled by the amount of poise and ability it takes to pull the tricks out of the bag without fail.

Acrobatic flips, fire breathing, chair stacking, hoop jumping, rope hopping – you name it, the Black Blues Brothers have got it!"
