The electrifying rock and roll party that is The Blues Brothers: Xmas Special arrives at the Arts Theatre London, with a show packed full of brand new material. Following huge success at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the celebrated tribute act rolls into London on November 26th 2015.

The Blues Brothers are the famous blues band formed in the 1970s by Dan Akroyd and John Belushi. With fresh material provided by Judith Belushi from Blues Brothers Approved Ventures, The Blues Brothers: Xmas Special pulls together classic songs from the rock ‘n’ roll, blues and soul movement, accompanied by a rollicking rhythm and blues band. Delivering stand-out numbers such as ‘Jailhouse Rock’, ‘Think’ and ‘Gimme Some Lovin’, this will be a night of first-class entertainment.

The Blues Brothers: Xmas Special sees a variety of songs performed with direction by Joshua Mumby, musical direction by James Robert Ball and choreography by Lily Howkins. The show is also produced by Hartshorn-Hook Productions, who recently brought smash-hit American Idiot to the Arts Theatre.

David Kristopher-Brown, who has previously performed in The Phantom of the Opera, will star alongside Mumby, playing the famous duo Joliet Jake and Elwood Blues. Simon Ray Harvey (Memphis) joins the cast as Ray and Sasi Strallen (Oklahoma!), T’Shan Williams and Hannah Kee feature alongside as the Stax Sisters.

So get ready to shake your tail feather and let yourself be free! The Blues Brothers: Xmas Special arrives at the Arts Theatre London for a limited festive season from November 26th to January 10th 2016.
