Following its run at the Prince of Wales theatre, Let It Be will Twist And Shout its way across the West End to the Savoy theatre next year.
The theatrical concert, which has had audiences Coming Together at the Prince of Wales theatre to celebrate the well-known music of legendary band The Beatles since September, will play at its new home from 1 February and is currently booking until 5 October.
Featuring some of the band’s greatest hits including I Wanna Hold Your Hand, A Hard Day’s Night, Day Tripper, Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Strawberry Fields Forever, When I’m 64, Get Back and, of course, Let It Be, the show charts the quartet’s meteoric rise from their humble beginnings in Liverpool’s Cavern Club through the height of Beatlemania to their later studio pieces.
2012 has been a momentous year for fans of the hugely successful rock ‘n’ roll band, with the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ first single Love Me Do and the opening of this popular production, which marks the first time the band’s back catalogue has been granted for a West End show.
Talking about its success, producer of the show, Jamie Hendry, said: “Night after night audiences leap to their feet, demonstrating that the music of The Beatles is as popular now as it ever has been. I am delighted that Let It Be has been so positively received, both critically and commercially, and the transfer to the Savoy theatre will allow this fantastic music to continue being showcased in the West End.”
Let It Be will play at the Prince of Wales theatre until 19 January before transferring to the home of Rufus Norris’ Olivier Award-winning production of Cabaret starring Will Young and Michelle Ryan.
