The CommitmentsRoddy Doyle's bestselling novel 'The Commitments', best known as a hit film in the 1990s, comes to the London stage more than 25 years after the book first published. The show, which took more than two years to make, has been adapted from the novel by Doyle himself and is staged at the Palace Theatre by award winning director Jamie Lloyd (the man behind the Trafalgar Transformed season at Trafalgar Studios and the recent production of Macbeth starring James McAvoy). The story is a heartwarming tale about a group drawn together by an advert to form the "finest soul act in Dublin". With the music playing such a key role in Alan Parker's 1991 film, and with Doyle and Lloyd behind it, The Commitments is a 'five-star smash hit musical' (Daily Telegraph).

 

About Palace Theatre

The towering Palace Theatre dominates Cambridge Circus. Five storeys of dark-red brick with octagonal towers on the top give it a looming aspect better suited to a court than a theatre. This sinister atmosphere is continued inside, with heavy blocks of marble, and Renaissance style arches in the foyer and stairwells. More about Palace Theatre
