If you haven’t seen The Commitments, it’s the story of Jimmy Rabbitte, a young working class music fan, who shapes an unlikely bunch of amateur musicians into an amazing live act, the finest soul band Dublin has ever produced.. Brian Gilligan plays the lead role of Deco who played drummer Billy ‘The Animal’ Mooney last year.
The Commitments has been bringing the people’s music to the people of London playing to packed out houses since the show opening in September 2013 at the Palace Theatre. The family friendly show has been extended twice due to over whelming popular demand.
The show is packed with classic soul songs including, Think by Aretha Franklin, (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction by the Rolling Stones, Papa Was A Rolling Stone by The Temptations, Knock on Wood by Eddie Floyd, In The Midnight Hour by Wilson Pickett, Try A Little Tenderness by Otis Redding and of course, Mustang Sally. The show has audiences of all ages on their feet and dancing in the aisles!
