What Is the Story of Let It Be?
Let It Be invites audience members along for the ride as the Beatles transform from local Liverpool musicians to international superstars. From their early concerts in the Cavern Club to the recording of their final studio album, Let It Be traces the evolution of the band with the help of animated projections, costume changes and video clips that evoke the culture of the ‘60s. The new tribute show is a multimedia extravaganza that’s the next best thing to seeing the Fab Four in person.
The performers are convincingly transformed into the Beatles’ various incarnations, from their original mop top, dark-suited look to the wildly costumed Sgt. Pepper era to the casual hipness of the later years.Review by Frank Scheck from The Hollywood Reporter
Visually invoking Lennon, Reuven Gershon performs with appropriate cool, while John Brosnan is nicely intense as lead guitarist George Harrison. Enacting still-living Beatles, James Fox incorporates eye-rolling, winking mannerisms and soaring vocals reminiscent of the young McCartney, while drummer Luke Roberts has a head-bopping good time as Ringo Starr.Review by Jennifer Farrar from Associated Press
What Is Let It Be Like?
Featuring dozens of the Beatles’ greatest hits played live, Let It Be is more of a concert than a musical—although the Fab Four sometimes talk to the audience or joke with one another, the production almost entirely consists of songs played straight through, one after the next. Tim McQuillen-Wright’s set designs recreate iconic Beatles venues like the Cavern Club and Shea Stadium, while immersive projection designs make the audience feel like honorary “Day Trippers.”
Is Let It Be Good For Kids?
Yes! If your child enjoys the hits of the Beatles, he’ll love dancing and singing along to “Twist and Shout,” “Drive My Car” and “She Loves You” in Let It Be.
