Once again, sporting their iconic hats, sunglasses, and suits, Jake and Elwood live on in the hit show, "The All-New Original Tribute to The Blues Brothers," which currently is making its West Coast premiere at the Irvine Barclay Theatre.
The critically acclaimed West End production has been upgraded for its U.S. tour, which features the original London cast with additional songs, revived choreography, and a brand new set.
The fully revamped production, which started touring the U.S. in the summer at the Chicago Auditorium Theatre, will wrap up its American tour in Irvine on April 7.
"This [America] is where it [The Blues Brothers] grew up," the show's director and writer Brad Henshaw said in a phone interview. "This is where it comes from. This is organically where it lives and reigns. So, it was a dream to come play in America; it was something that we thought would never happen, bringing this back home."
