Let It Be, the concert show based on the music of The Beatles, has extended its run at the Savoy Theatre until 18 January 2014.
The show, which recently announced it will open on Broadway in July, premiered in September last year at the Prince of Wales Theatre before transferring to the Savoy.
Producers have also announced a new pricing scheme which will see a new £15.00 ticket introduced, with no booking fee or restoration levy charged on any tickets.
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.
Let It Be is compiled of two casts, alternating from night to night. The current company is comprised of: Emanuele Angeletti, John Brosnan, James Fox, Michael Gagliano, Reuven Gershon, Stephen Hill, Phil Martin and Luke Roberts. Each band is joined for several songs by either Ryan Alex Farmery or Michael Bramwell on keyboards.
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.
