The show is a magical journey into the Beatles' universe.
The script is a musical journey into The Beatles’ repertoire, a theatrical view on the quartet’s mythical universe, where the songs appear in new arrangements and rhythms, each one telling it’s own story, all stories part of a greater picture: a young girl’s journey through life’s experiences as she matures into a wiser person - just as each and everyone of us.
Most of the classics are there, and also some “B side” pearls. The music itself plays the leading role in the show, performed by 11 (eleven) singers/musicians, luxuriously accompanied by piano, cello, percussion and acoustic guitar. As simple as it gets, as beautiful as it could possibly be, the myriad of voices reveal the magic and simplicity of the melodies and lyrics. The minimalist scenography and the amazing lighting create an intimate environment that puts the audience at ease to contemplate the Beatles’ legacy. All the songs are performed in English, and there’s no reference whatsoever to the band or any of its members - apart from the music.
Whether you’re a fan or just a music enthusiast, the play pleases everyone - kids from 1 to 92. It reminds us that “in the end, the Love you take is equal to the Love you make”. Love, after all, is all we need.
