Theatre Review: The Commitments, Empire Theatre, Liverpool

The Commitments is an enjoyable show and features some stunning vocal performances, but had the comedic material and the story been stronger, or at the very least its conclusion, this could have been included within the category of "highly recommended".

If you're a dance enthusiast, or if you're familiar with the work of Michael Flatley, then Lord Of The Dance - Dangerous Games will be a real treat for you.
