They’ve only just finished celebrating St Patrick’s Day, but now hit musical The Commitments has another reason to crack out the Guinness as the show has extended its London run to 19 April 2015.
The show, based on Roddy Doyle’s hit novel and its film adaptation, had previously been booking until September 2014.
Starring Killian Donnelly and directed by Jamie Lloyd, The Commitments tells the story of working class music fan Jimmy Rabbitte, who brings together an unlikely collection of musicians to create Dublin’s finest soul band. But just as the band starts to find success, they collectively hit the self-destruct button.
The production, which was adapted for the stage by Doyle, features an incredible roster of classic soul tracks, including Think, Papa Was A Rolling Stone, In The Midnight Hour and Mustang Sally.
Speaking about the extension, producer Phil McIntyre said: “We’re extremely happy to announce that The Commitments has extended its current booking period to April 2015. The show has really found its feet in the Palace Theatre and the response from audiences has been quite incredible.”
