Synopsis: 

Born as a West End production to celebrate the legendary band’s 50th anniversary, Let It Be uses state-of-the-art projection technology and 3D sound to put audiences at the heart of The Beatles’ meteoric rise from their humble beginnings in Liverpool’s Cavern Club, through the heights of Beatlemania, to their later studio masterpieces with live performances of songs including “ Twist and Shout,” “She Loves You” and “Drive My Car,” “Yesterday,” “Hey Jude,” “Come Together” and, of course, “Let It Be.”

    Returning to Ensnare Old Rockers and Young

    Anita Gates

    July 24, 2013: Why do they all look like Paul? Not that I’m complaining, but in the first half of “Let It Be: A Celebration of the Music of the Beatles,” which opened with a burst of musical magical realism on Wednesday night at the St. James Theater, three of the four musicians out front resembled a young Mr. McCartney. None looked particularly like John Lennon or George Harrison. Clearly that was supposed to be Ringo Starr (Chris McBurney) on the drum platform, with a cigarette hanging from his mouth. But, you know — Ringo, drums, pretty easy.

    Review: Fab fakes in Beatles tribute musical ‘Let It Be’ from United Kingdom

    Jennifer Farrar

    July 24, 2013: Even fake Beatles can bring back good memories of the real thing, when they’re truly talented. The Beatles, arguably one of the most talented and influential bands in musical history, produced a treasure trove of unforgettable tunes. Mostly written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, their dozens of classic hits include “Yesterday,” ‘’Hey, Jude,” ‘’Get Back,” ‘’Come Together” and “Let it Be.”

    Let It Be: Theater Review

    Frank Scheck

    July 24, 2013: Another year, another Beatles tribute show on Broadway. Less than two years after the Fab Four were last resurrected in Rain, the similarly conceived and executed Let It Be has arrived to satisfy the nostalgic demands of aging baby boomers. Indeed, this show is so closely patterned after Rain that its creators have initiated a lawsuit arguing copyright infringement. But whatever legal complications ensue, there’s no doubt that the experience is virtually the same.

    Theater Review: 'Let It Be' -- 1.5 stars

    Matt Windman

    July 24, 2013: “Let It Be” is the latest in the never-ending parade of cheap, cheesy Beatles tribute concerts on Broadway that has previously included such titles as “Beatlemania” in the late 1970s and “Rain” just three seasons ago.

    'Let It Be' brings Beatles back to Broadway, again

    Elysa Gardner

    July 24, 2013: Watching the new Beatles homageLet It Be(* * ½ out of four), certain audience members are bound to feel a sense of déjà vu — not for the Fab Four themselves, but for the last Broadway salute to them.
