The hit West End musical. A feel-good celebration of soul, based on the award-winning film.

Direct from a phenomenally successful run in the West End, The Commitments tells the story of Jimmy Rabbitte, a young working class music fan, who shapes an unlikely bunch of amateur musicians and friends into an amazing live act, the finest soul band Dublin has ever produced.

The Commitments received universal critical acclaim following its London World Premiere and was quickly hailed as a smash hit musical sensation. With over 20 soul classics performed live on stage including: Try A Little Tenderness, In The Midnight Hour, Papa Was A Rolling Stone, Mustang Sally, Reach Out, Uptight, Knock On Wood, I Can't Turn You Loose and more!

A guaranteed fabulously-fun night out you will simply never forget.
