Reasons for trip

LET IT BE, is a spectacular West End show celebrating the music of The Beatles. For those of us brought up in The Beatles' era, it seems like only yesterday that John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr took to the stage with their guitars and controversial long hair. To think it has been 50years since the release of their first album, Please Please Me, LET IT BE is a 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. Packed with over forty of The Beatles' greatest hits that include such well known classics as: I Wanna Hold Your Hand, Hard Day's Night, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and many more. The show comprises of four musicians. Painstaking attention to detail lifts their performance from being merely satisfactory to being a smash hit. With the help of costumes and wigs the four have been made to resemble John, Paul, George and Ringo. The resemblance is uncanny. The way they sing, the way they play the guitar, their stance on stage, even the Liverpudlian accent has Beatles written all over it. "Will the people in the cheaper seats clap your hands? And the rest of you, if you'll just rattle your jewellery," Said by Lennon at the Royal Command Performance in 1963. It is repeated here and you could almost be listening to John himself. The show is compiled of two casts, alternating from night to night. The current company is comprised of: Emanuele Angeletti, John Brosnan, James Fox, Michael Gagliano, Reuven Gershon, Stephen Hill, Phil Martin and Luke Roberts.
