The Beatles are coming to LA! Backbeat, the musical about how the band was formed, is coming to the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles for its US debut. Direct from London, the show will feature some of your favorite songs including “Twist and Shout,” “Love Me Do,” “Long Tall Sally,” “P.S. I Love You,” “Rock and Roll Music,” “I Saw Her Standing There” and many more. Backbeat is directed by five-time Tony Award nominee David Leveaus and co-written by Iain Softley and Stephen Jeffreys.
The theater scene in LA is going to rock this Sunday, January 20th when the show premieres for the first time in the US. This is a story about friendship, love, and the sacrifices artists make to be successful in the music industry.
Here is a short synopsis of the show:
Before Sgt. Pepper. Before Abbey Road. Even before Ringo, there were five Beatles. Five rowdy working class lads from the docks of Liverpool rocking out eight days a week in the raucous clubs and red-light seediness of Hamburg, Germany, creating an epic new sound.
