The Commitments is coming to Birmingham Hippodrome & its bursting with the feelgood factor

It’s had a record-breaking run in London’s West End - and The Commitments is returning to Birmingham Hippodrome

It’s five years since The Commitments came to London’s West End and then embarked on a sell out tour.

Now the feel good music show, based on the BAFTA award winning 1991 film classic is back on the road again with its enigmatic celebration of soul - do you remember Mustang Sally?

The Commitments tells the story of Jimmy Rabbitte, a young working-class music fan who dreams of starting the finest soul band Dublin has ever produced. Placing a classified advert in a music paper, Jimmy auditions a number of wannabes before finalising the members of his new band: The Commitments.

But as any live musician knows, getting a band together never quite goes to plan – especially after a few pints of Guinness! Tickets are still available and you can get ours at: Birmingham Hippodrome, The Commitments
