Blitz!

About Blitz!

Blitz! is a musical extravaganza, written by Lionel Bart as his follow up to ‘Oliver!’, based upon his experiences as a child in the East End during the blitz.

In 1940 the East End of London is taking a terrible pounding from Hitler’s bombs. Life, however, goes on, centring around the matriarchal Mrs. Blitztein and her large family, especially her petty-criminal son Harry and her beautiful daughter Carol. They all fight their own particular battles with neighbours and authorities alike, through many situations, many humorous, some tragic, and eventually find their own individual peace.

Blitz! features many hit songs, including “The Day After Tomorrow”, “Who’s This Geezer Hitler?”, and “Mums and Dads”, and MAMA are delighted to bring this musical to The Brunton Theatre in April 2019, especially as this year marks the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings and Germany’s V1 bombing of England and the 20th anniversary of Lionel Bart's passing.

So please come and join us ‘down Petticoat Lane’ 11th to 13th April 2019....
