Originally from the Roddy Doyle book, which was also adapted into a wonderful Neil Jordan film, this is the latest touring
version of the musical, The Commitments. Set in 1980s Dublin, this is the story of a young band coming together to ‘bring soul’ to Ireland, before it all falls apart. Featuring a great soundtrack of soul songs, this has been around in some form in the UK for the last 10 years, and for good reason.

It’s been a while since I’ve seen this show, but I needed a great feel good show to take the family (parents) to and so I booked The Commitments.

The story of a group of unlikely lads who set out to bring “Soul To The People” managed by Jimmy Rabbitt, tells the story of how, if people work together amazing things can and do happen. Based on Roddy Doyle‘s novel and subsequent hit film in 1991 all set in Dublin in the 1980’s.
