It’s been confirmed that a new bio-musical about the rise to fame of the Bee Gees is in the works, and could be eyeing a place in the West End.
Universal Theatrical Group is the team behind...
Let It Be featuring Beatles songs, directed by John Maher, has extended its run by three weeks at the Savoy Theatre to 8 Feb 2014.
To celebrate fifty years since THE BEATLES released their first single ‘Love Me Do’ in October 1962, the show opened at the Prince of Wales Theatre 24 Sep 2012, following previews from 14 Sep, to mostly good notices from the popular press. It transferred to its current home, the Savoy Theatre, on 1 Feb 2013.
The show uses video footage to tell the story of the band’s meteoric rise from their humble beginnings in Liverpool’s Cavern Club, through the height of Beatlemania, to their later studio masterpieces.
Featuring more than twenty of The Beatles’ greatest hits, including I Wanna Hold Your Hand, Hard Day’s Night, Day Tripper, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Strawberry Fields, When I’m 64, Hello Goodbye, Get Back and many more, all performed by hand-picked master musicians.
It is the first time that the Grand Theatrical Rights to The Beatles’ back catalogue have been granted by Sony/ATV for a West End production.
The West End show is produced by Jamie Hendry Productions, Annerin Productions, Rain Productions, BB Promotion, MagicSpace Entertainment & Julian Stoneman Associates.
