The Commitments

The talented young cast of The Commitments give this stage version of Roddy Doyle’s 1987 novel, best known for the 1991 BAFTA Award winning film, plenty of commitment. The loud and long musical jukebox score — which draws on a programme listing of nearly 40 songs, not all of them given in their entirety — is naturally embedded into the action by being about a Dublin-based soul covers band.
