The show began previews July 16 and officially opened July 24.

Upon its closing, Let It Be will have played 9 previews and 46 performances.

The cast features Graham Alexander, Roberto Angelelli, Jimmy Coburn, Tony Coburn, JT Curtis, Tyson Kelly, Chris McBurney and Luke Roberts, with John Korba and Daniel A. Weiss.

"After summer sales proved to be more challenging than expected, the producers have opted to utilize the cast, physical production elements, and other resources to fulfill worldwide demand, instead of awaiting the more traditionally robust sales that come with the holiday season," press notes state. "Those plans include a North American tour for the 2014/15 Season; an extensive UK tour; an international tour to visit Moscow, Japan, and Monaco; and other worldwide opportunities. A three-city tour of Germany is also underway this month, visiting Leipzig, Cologne, and Frankfurt."

Let It Be began as a West End production to celebrate The Beatles' 50th anniversary. Using projection technology and 3D sound, the show chronicles the Beatles' rise from Liverpool's Cavern Club to the height of their fame through live performances of songs including "Twist and Shout," "She Loves You," "Drive My Car," "Yesterday," "Hey Jude," "Come Together" and "Let It Be."

The production includes musical supervision and direction by John Maher, scenic design by Tim McQuillen-Wright, lighting design by Jason Lyons, sound design by Gareth Owen, video design by Duncan McLean, costume supervision by Jack Galloway and technical supervision by Arthur Siccardi and Pat Sullivan.

Let It Be is produced for Broadway by Jeff Parry/Annerin Productions, Yasuhiro Kawana, BB Promotion, Rubin Fogel and Jujamcyn Theaters.
