Let It Be showcases the music of the Beatles, in a "theatrical concert" charting the band’s meteoric rise from their humble beginnings in Liverpool’s Cavern Club, through the height of Beatlemania, to their later studio masterpieces. It's the first time that the Grand Theatrical Rights to The Beatles’ back catalogue have been granted by Sony/ATV for a West End production.
Directed by John Maher, the show includes 40 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”, “Get Back” and many more.
There are two casts performing in the show, alternating from night to night. The current company, who were put together by producers following an international talent search, including open auditions at the Cavern Club in Liverpool, is comprised of Emanuele Angeletti, John Brosnan, Gordon Elsmore, James Fox, Michael Gagliano, Reuven Gershon, Stephen Hill and Phil Martin.
The cast announced their arrival in the West End by playing an impromptu gig including hits “Twist and Shout”, “Hard Day’s Night” and, of course, “Let It Be”, to an invited audience at the Vista rooftop bar at The Trafalgar Hotel.
