| By Jacob Porteous
Let It Be played its 1000th UK performance in the West End as it entered the final part of its run. The show has just four weeks left to play at the Garrick Theatre and audiences have now just 38 more performances to catch this record-breaking production before it closes on September 5th.
Let It Be established itself as one of the West End’s most popular shows when the production originally opened at the Prince of Wales Theatre in September 2012, before transferring for a year-long run at the Savoy Theatre from January 2013 – February 2014. The show then embarked on its inaugural UK & Ireland tour before enjoying a summer season at the Garrick Theatre last year. This final season at the Garrick will end on September 5th.
Seen by over 1,000,000 people worldwide, Let It Be has delighted audiences across the globe, having recently entertained fans in Germany, Austria, Italy, Russia, Monaco, Tokyo, Singapore and America.
Jamie Hendry (Producer) – “Let It Be has been a joyous and brilliant ride. The success of the show demonstrates the enduring love the UK and the world has for the music of the Beatles. It has been a blast and we are delighted that our association with The Beatles will continue next year with our completely new production Love Is All You Need”
Let It Be showcases the music of the world’s most successful rock’n’roll band, in a spectacular 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.
The show is packed with over forty of The Beatles’ greatest hits including: I Wanna Hold Your Hand, Hard Day’s Night, Day Tripper, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Strawberry Fields, When I’m 64, Twist and Shout, Get Back and many more.
