Altarena Playhouse's 'Blood Brothers' is bold and powerful
BLOOD BROTHERS at Altarena Playhouse
brings 1960s England, to Alameda
Not many regional stages produce this 1983 musical - It ran for over 20 years on the West End in London. It’s a fun first act, but the second act is as dark as they come. It was nice to find this musical at one of the better East Bay black box stages headed by Clay David, the Altarena Playhouse. Where you can get an in your face performance with any play or musical staged at this High Street venue. Its a living room performance from the first song to the curtain call.
