The Commitments

18 – 23 January 2021

Donald Gordon Theatre

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 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!

This is rated 4 out of 5 stars

“Unstoppable fun. A big-hearted, big night out”

The Times

A guaranteed fabulously-fun night out you will simply never forget.

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

The Commitments is the story of Jimmy Rabbitte, a young working-class music fan, who shapes an unlikely bunch of amateur musicians and friends into the finest soul band Dublin has ever produced.
