What if The Beatles had reunited 10 years after their break-up? In the revamped production Let It Be, that question gets answered by one of the West End’s most popular musical productions coming to the Fort Collins Lincoln Center March 28.
Showcasing the world’s most successful rock ‘n’ roll band, the original production Let It Be: A Celebration of the Music of The Beatles opened on London’s West End in 2012. The show charted The Beatles meteoric rise, moved through the height of Beatlemania, and delved into their later studio masterpieces. It instantly became a smash success and garnered critical acclaim.
Now the production has been revamped and is touring the U.S. The first half of the show delivers an abbreviated version of the original critically acclaimed show – highlighting favorite Beatle’s songs such as “Hard Day’s Night,” “Twist and Shout,” “Hey Jude” and “Got to Get You Into My Life.” In a change from the original theatrical production, the second half now imagines a world in which The Beatles are reunited for an epic concert taking place on October 9, 1980 – what would have been John Lennon’s 40th birthday. For one night, the fab four come together again on stage after a decade apart performing individual works from John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr. You’ll hear “Imagine” “Live and Let Die, ” “My Sweet Lord, ” and many more hits.
If you’re a Beatle’s fan (and let’s face it who isn’t), you won’t want to miss Let It Be rockin’ the Fort Collins Lincoln Center March 28. Tickets start at $20. You can find more info here.
