Beatles Musical Coming
The stage version premiered, low-key, in Glasgow in 2010, but it's now set for a West End theater run.
According to producer Karl Sydow, "It 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. Next year will mark 50 years since The Beatles released their first single, and I am proud to be bringing their early days to life in [London's] West End."
