Theatre REVIEW: The Commitments - ★★★★

The Commitments is a fantastically feel good celebration of soul. Returning to tour the UK and Ireland 5 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.

The Commitments received universal critical acclaim following its London World Premiere and was quickly hailed as a smash hit musical sensation. 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!

The Commitments musical has been adapted from the novel by Booker prize winning author Roddy Doyle himself and is directed by Andrew Linnie.

Meggan (Age 13) - ★★★★

"Commitments is a lively and entertaining adaptation of the 1991 movie and 1987 novel by Roddy Doyle. It tells the story of a group of Irish musicians in the eighties who form a band with the intent to play new and modern music, which gives them the idea to play soul. The cast is made up of incredible actors and actresses who manage to engage the audience and put on a phenomenal show. The 2 hour and 20-minute-long show was made up mostly of singing and performing. Every one of the actors had fantastic voices and kept up the fast and fun pace throughout the entirety of the show."
