#TBT: Playbill: Blood Brothers: February 1994

I knew when I was going through my Playbill collection looking for a new #TBT subject, I had to include this one!

Blood Brothers is one of my all-time favorite shows. I saw it an embarrassing number of times, missing only one of the many leading ladies (Carole King). Probably my favorite cast, though, was the one headed by Petula Clark, David Cassidy and Shaun Cassidy. They were incredible, and so was the entire company. And i have an awesome stage door story involving them, but that's for another time! (Again, I apologize for my photos...)

Notice Broadway debutante Kerry Butler (3rd row)

Victor Garber was on Broadway then,
and wasn't it nice of Joseph... to do TWO
Sunday matinees?

Is this 2018 or 1994? Angels in America, My Fair Lady 
played both years, and The Phantom of the Opera and
Blue Man Group haven't closed yet!

And my three favorite Blood Brothers stars...

Petula Clark
Mrs. Johnstone

David and Shaun Cassidy
Mickey and Eddie
