The non-Equity tour of Let It Be: A Celebration of the Music of the Beatles, which is described as the second part of the production that ran on Broadway in 2013, launches February 11 at the King Center for the Performing Arts in Melbourne, FL. The cast features Neil Candelora as Paul, JT Curtis as George, Michael Gagliano as John, Chris McBurney as Ringo, and musical director Daniel A. Weiss as the 5th Beatle. The tour is currently scheduled to conclude April 2 at the Harris Center in Folsom, CA.
“What if the Beatles had reunited 10 years after their break-up?“ ask production notes. “This revamped production of Let It Be: A Celebration of the Music of the Beatles answers that question, and brings you the show that you never got to see. While the first half of the theatrical performance is comprised of favorites from the Beatles career, the all new second half imagines a world in which the Beatles reunited.”
Songs in the production include "Hard Day's Night," "Day Tripper," "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band," "Twist and Shout," "Get Back," "I Wanna Hold Your Hand," and "Strawberry Fields,” as well as "Back in the USSR," "Live and Let Die," "Got to Get You Into My Life," "My Sweet Lord," "Hey Jude," and more.
The creative team also includes director and musical supervisor John Maher, set designer Tim McQuillen Wright, lighting designer Humphrey McDermott, video designer Duncan McLean, and original video designers Darren McCaulley and Mathieu St-Arnaud. Annerin Productions produces.
