The CommitmentsFURTHER INFORMATION TO FOLLOW
Following a sellout run in 2017, The Commitments is returning to the Grand Opera House in 2021! This fantastically feel-good celebration of soul, which enjoyed a phenomenally successful record breaking two-year run in London’s West End, is based on the BAFTA award-winning film classic.
The show has been adapted for the stage by Booker Prize-winning author Roddy Doyle from his original novel, and is packed with more than 20 classic soul songs performed live on stage including Mustang Sally, Night Train, Try A Little Tenderness, River Deep, Mountain High, In The Midnight Hour, Papa Was A Rolling Stone, Save Me, 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 show follows Jimmy Rabbitte, a young working class music fan, as he attempts to shape an unlikely bunch of amateur musicians and friends into an amazing live act, the finest soul band Dublin has ever produced.
