Flashback Friday: Shaun And David Cassidy Sing "Tell Me It's Not True"

I just discovered this clip of brothers David and Shaun Cassidy from the 90s when they were starring (as brothers) in the Broadway production of Blood Brothers with Petula Clark.

As folks know, the song is usually performed by the role of the mother and joined by the full company at the end of Act Two. It's a big, moving company number that brings down the house.

Interestingly, Shaun and David's characters are the only folks who don't sing the song since they are lying dead on the ground at the time.

It makes me wonder why it's the brothers Cassidy singing here and not Petula. Maybe she didn't want to get up and sing that early?

In any case, it's the only time I've ever seen the song performed by the two "brother" characters, and I think it's quite lovely.

Sadly, the world recently found out David is suffering from dementia.
