‘The Black Blues Brothers Performing at Assembly Rooms (Music Hall) in Edinburgh’

by Dubaiforum

The highly acclaimed physical theatre show, The Black Blues Brothers, is making its grand return to the Edinburgh Fringe for the fourth and final time. With a history of three successful years filled with standing ovations, sold-out performances, and rave reviews, this acrobatic extravaganza is ready to bid farewell in style. Audiences can once again experience the impressive athleticism, flips, tricks, fiery limbo, human pyramids, and comedic moments all set to the iconic tunes of The Blues Brothers.

This unique circus tribute to the cult movie by John Landis has captivated audiences worldwide, with over 900 shows and 600,000 spectators across the globe. From Australia to the United Arab Emirates, from Europe to Bahrain, the troupe has wowed crowds and even had the honor of performing at prestigious events such as the Royal Variety Performance and in front of Pope Francis. A special appearance at the Moulin Rouge further solidified their status as an international sensation.

Set in a charming Cotton Club-style lounge bar, the show follows a workman who dreams of joining the Blues Brothers. With the arrival of two characters resembling the iconic duo of John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd, the dream begins to take shape. The vintage radio plays soulful rhythm ‘n’ blues hits like “Gimme Some Lovin’, “Sweet Home Chicago,” and “Soul Man,” setting the stage for a mesmerizing display of acrobatics using everyday objects like chairs, tables, and even mirrors.

The Black Blues Brothers deliver a powerful message of passion and determination through their awe-inspiring performances, proving that anything is achievable when one is willing to take a leap of faith. Critics and audiences alike have showered the show with praise, with comments like “unforgettable joy from start to finish,” “couldn’t get enough,” and “Jaw-dropping stunts.” This final run of The Black Blues Brothers at the Edinburgh Fringe promises to be a fitting send-off for a show that has left an indelible mark on the world of physical theatre.
