Let It Be, the hugely popular theatrical concert featuring the songs of The Beatles, will return to the West End for a third time next year.
The tribute show, which showcases the music of one of the world’s best-loved and most successful rock bands, will be welcomed back to the Garrick Theatre from 28 February to 27 September.
Charting the meteoric rise from their humble beginnings in Liverpool’s Cavern Club through the height of Beatlemania to their later studio pieces, Let It Be is packed full of more than 40 of the band’s greatest hits including When I’m 64, Twist And Shout, Hard Day’s Night and Strawberry Fields.
The concert, which has now been seen by more than a million people worldwide, originally opened at the Prince of Wales Theatre in 2012. Since then it has enjoyed two successful runs in the West End, at the Savoy and the Garrick Theatre.
Talking about Let It Be’s return, the show’s producer Jamie Hendry said: “Now in its third year, Let It Be continues to draw crowds and delight audiences around the world. Its return to the West End for its fourth season is only testament to the huge popularity of The Beatles.”
The production, casting for which is still to be announced, will arrive at the Garrick Theatre following the current run of Olivier Award nominated musical The Scottsboro Boys, which ends on 21 February. Kander and Ebb’s provocative piece is sharing its residence this festive season with gruesome family hit Horrible Histories: Barmy Britain Part Two!, which plays until 3 January.
Both The Scottsboro Boys and Horrible Histories: Barmy Britain Part Two! are taking part in Get Into London Theatre, our annual promotion offering amazing discounts for scores of London shows from 1 January to 13 February. Tickets for Get Into London Theatre go on sale at 10:00 tomorrow.
