West End's Let It Be to Transfer to Savoy Theatre After Current Season at Prince of Wales Theatre
By Mark Shenton
The West End run of the Beatles tribute show Let It Be, currently at the Prince of Wales through Jan. 19, 2013, will continue by transferring to the Savoy Theatre, where it will resume performances Feb. 1.
According to press materials, Let It Be "showcases the music of the world's most successful rock’n’roll band, in a spectacular 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 is the only time that the Grand Theatrical Rights to The Beatles’ back catalogue have been granted by Sony/ATV for a West End production."
In a press statement, producer Jamie Hendry commented, "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."
There are two casts performing in the show, alternating from night to night. The current company comprises Emanuele Angeletti, John Brosnan, Gordon Elsmore, James Fox, Michael Gagliano, Reuven Gershon, Stephen Hill and Phil Martin. Each band is joined for several songs by either Ryan Alex Farmery or Michael Bramwell on keyboards.
The show is directed by Joey Curatolo, who is also the musical supervisor, with musical direction by John Maher. It is produced by Jamie Hendry Productions, Annerin Productions, BB Promotion, MagicSpace Entertainment, Rubin Fogel & Julian Stoneman Associates.
