The Commitments (Touring), Various Venues

The Commitments is a fantastic feel-good celebration of soul. Direct from a phenomenally successful record-breaking run in London's West End, The Commitments is based on the BAFTA-winning film classic.

The Commitments received universal critical acclaim following its London World Premiere and was quickly hailed as a smash hit musical sensation. More than 20 soul classics are 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 award-winning Jamie Lloyd.

It's the story of Jimmy Rabbitte, a young working-class music fan, who shapes an unlikely bunch of amateur musicians and friends into an amazing live act, the finest soul band Dublin has ever produced. The show follows the journey of two members of a frustrated synthesizer band. In the opening scene we find them playing but being ignored in a shop window, so they turn to Jimmy, the local music expert, for help. Placing a classified advert in a music paper, Jimmy auditions a number of wannabes before finalising the new line-up, which he names The Commitments.

The humour kicks in as the band get to know each other and their instruments, and proceeds through early rehearsals for their first gig. Just as they improve and begin to get a name for themselves, they combust. The backing singers are all getting off with the middle-aged horn legend, the singer has entered Eurovision, and the saxophone player has a dangerous leaning towards a jazz career.

The Commitments is guaranteed to be a fabulously fun night out that you will never forget.
