The Blues Brothers — Approved

Musical Theater Basel
Sunday, 19 May

During the '70s, The Blues Brothers were born from a comedy act by John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd. After the success of their first album “Briefcase Full of Blues” and an American tour, the iconic and spectacular comedy film followed, filled with music and special guest appearances. Many soul and blues legends made their appearance, with brilliant performances by Ray Charles and Aretha Franklin in this film, which became a cult. The hits from the film—“Everybody Needs Somebody to Love,” “Soul Man,” and “Think”—have never left contemporary play lists.
In the biggest and best Blues Brothers touring theater production in the world Jake and Elwood are back! In this AMPM production starring Brad Henshaw as Jake, the anarchist brothers are turning theaters upside down all over the world. With thundering soul, rhythm & blues, brilliant entertainment, a live band, and an unprecedented show, these gentlemen are making a statement. The elaborate show with a large stage design, impressive sound and light effects, rousing dance performances and acting interludes peppered with a lot of humor also impresses with a top live band and cult hits from Chicago. This show proves again and again: Jake and Elwood Blues are immortal!
Approved and licensed by Dan Aykroyd and Judith Belushi, this production has performed on five separate highly successful runs in London's famous West End, seven-week residency in Chicago, and 14 week coast-to-coast tours of the United States and has travelled the globe since 1995. Dan Aykroyd trademarked his band name The Blues Brothers. Now he has given this production the worldwide exclusive right to the name. They are now returning to Switzerland for the third time, with a total of 12 artists on stage and providing first-class entertainment.
