The Beatles show you never got to see, at Proctors, 8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 18
What if the Beatles had reunited 10 years after their break-up? 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 composed of favorites from the Beatles career, the all new second half imagines a world in which the Beatles re-united.
Tickets for Let It Be: A Celebration of the Music of the Beatles at Proctors, 8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 18, $20–$70, are available at the Box Office at Proctors, 432 State Street, Schenectady.
Relive the past from Ed Sullivan to Abbey Road, with favorite hits including “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,” and imagine the reunion that never was .
The end of The Beatles era was never thought to be in sight when the band played its last show on the roof of Apple Offices in 1969. Imagine what would have been if The Beatles continued their journey. Enter a time capsule and turn back time to what would have been John Lennon’s 40th Birthday—October 9, 1980. For one night, the fab four come together again on stage after a decade apart, performing other hits like “Back in the U.S.S.R,” “Live and Let Die,” “Got to Get You Into My Life,” “My Sweet Lord,” “Hey Jude” and many more never-before-seen numbers performed live!
Seen by more than two million worldwide, Let It Be: A Celebration of the Music of the Beatles made its North American debut in the spring of 2015, with an eight week run throughout the U.S. and Canada. Now, based on the Broadway show praised as “by far the best Beatles show yet” (New York Times), Annerin Productions brings audiences “part two,” a new, revamped show for its 2016-17 touring season.
The original production—which established itself as one of the West End’s most popular shows when it opened in 2012—recently surpassed 1000 performances, showcasing the music of the world’s most successful rock’n’roll band, and charting the band’s meteoric rise from its humble beginnings in Liverpool’s Cavern Club, through the height of Beatlemania, to its later studio masterpieces.
