Backbeat London Theatre Breaks at the Duke of York's Theatre London

Backbeat London Theatre Breaks


The Beatles biopic Backbeat has sclosed in London and theatre breaks for Backbeat are no longer available.

Backbeat is a stage adaptation of the 1994 Beatles biopic and will open at the Duke of York’s theatre London on Monday October 10th – the musical tells the early story of The Beatles: how John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Pete Best and Stuart Sutcliffe start out on their journey to become the one of the most successful bands of all time.

Backbeat producer talks about the show

Backbeat at the Duke Of York theatre will allow people the experience of being at the birth of The Beatles. It tells a story that many music fans may not know, set to a musical backdrop that absolutely defined the early 60s,” said producer Karl Sydow.

Backbeat features the all-time rock ‘n’ roll classics that the Beatles cut their teeth with – ‘Twist and Shout’, ‘Rock ‘N’ Roll Music’, ‘Long Tall Sally’, ‘Please Mr Postman’ and ‘Money’ – live on stage as performed by ‘The Beatles’.

It is only booking until March 2012 but I am sure it will extend as surely, being the tale of the UK’s most famous band it is prime Tourist fodder for the Olympics – I only hope they make the effort to go up to Liverpool too!

Where do I begin? I went with a little trepidation having read scathing review in Daily Telegraph, but having loved the film so much was determined to make up my own mind.

I needn't have worried. The show was brilliant. I LOVE the fact that the cast are all round performers - acting singing musicians.

Really enjoyed watching the 2 actors that played John Lennon & Paul McCartney (Andrew Knott & Daniel Healy respectively).

The energy was electric, the set design was stupendous and the use of the B&W photographs was put to great effect.

Amazing!! Great energy, superb casting and accomplished musical performances that keep the show rocking & rolling along at a frenetic pace.
The acting holds up well against the music - and you'll be dancing in the aisles by the end!
