Following a successful run on the West End, The Commitments musical will come to Dublin’s Olympia Theatre and Belfast’s Grand Opera House in 2023. Both Roddy Doyle’s original novel and the 1991 film adaption are beloved amongst Dubliners so expectations will be high for the theatre production.

Nigel Pivaro, best known for his portrayal of Terry Duckworth on Coronation Street will be taking on the ‘Da’ role made famous by Dublin’s own Colm Meaney.
