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

The Times

The Commitments tells the story of Jimmy Rabbitte, a young working-class music fan who dreams of starting the finest soul band Dublin has ever produced. Placing a classified advert in a music paper, Jimmy auditions a number of wannabes before finalising the members of his new band: The Commitments. But as any live musician knows, getting a band together never quite goes to plan – especially after a few pints of Guinness!

 Come and see the West End smash hit spectacular that is a guaranteed “fabulously fun night out” (Daily Mail) you will simply never forget.
