This week we opened the world premiere of Rambert Dance in Peaky Blinders: The Redemption of Thomas Shelby and last night critics tipped their caps to this spectacular dance production.

See the reviews below for the production that has taken the city by storm…

Broadway World ★★★★★

“Gloriously dark and darkly glorious, The Redemption of Thomas Shelby is an experience not to be missed.”

“A truly spectacular piece of theatre that will excite and please audiences across the country…a hot ticket for anyone, not just Peaky Blinders fans!”

 “This pulsating five star night at the theatre is a contender for Show of the Year.”

Small House Big Trips★★★★★

“Rambert Dance Company channel the soul of Peaky Blinders and deliver a jaw dropping show of music and dance”

 The Guardian ★★★★

The dancers come out all guns blazing (and knives, and razor blades), in rollicking brawls where bodies stab and lurch, full of swagger and attitude.”

What’s On Stage ★★★★

“In keeping with the Peaky Blinders brand, the score by Roman GianArthur is wonderful”

What’s On ★★★★

“The show packs plenty of punch, has strong characterisation and fantastic music and was a clear winner with its Birmingham audience”

Weekend Notes ★★★★

“It’s got the essence and attitude of the Peakys down to a tee”

 Express & Star

 “The production aims to bring dance to those who may not see the art as ‘for them’ – and it achieves this goal resoundingly.”

Style Birmingham

“From the reverberating opening drum-beats to the five-minute standing ovation, Peaky Blinders: The Redemption of Thomas Shelby is nothing short of spectacular.”

Seeing Dance

“A fantastic evening of dance theatre”

Birmingham World

“This dance was deeply emotive, strong, athletic with an iconic Brummie tale to tell”

Black Country Radio

“This production is an outstanding, mind-blowing piece of performance art.”

 Birmingham Live

“To me, professional dance has always felt like a thing that people richer, or more sophisticated than me, enjoy. But this didn’t feel like their thing at all – it felt like an everyone thing. A Brum thing. And that, I feel, is really something to celebrate.”

Peaky Blinders: The Redemption of Thomas Shelby runs until Sunday 2 October with limited tickets remaining. The production returns to us in May 2023, so book early to avoid disappointment!
