How was your experience?
The theatre offers an intimate setting with an excellent view from any seat in the house. The acoustics are very good and the staff friendly and courteous. The performance was great entertainment with solid performances by each member. They began the show dressed in period Beatle boots, suits and haircuts and performed all the early hits with several contributions from "Ringo"; and "Paul" giving a stirring rendition of "Yesterday". They played several more songs including "Taxman" off the "Revolver" album and "Norwegian Wood" off of the "Rubber Soul" album with "John" making a vocal faux paux, but such is the stuff of live perfornmances, no lip synching here! After a twenty minute intermission they came back in "Sgt Pepper" outfits and began with that title track and continued with "I am the Walrus" and more. "John" did a quick change into a white suit to deliver an impassioned "Imagine" with the rest of the group dressed in "Let It Be" period attire to continue "Revolution" and several selections from the "White Album" including "Back in The USSR" and an excellent rendition of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" with killer guitar work from "George". Although they did not effect perfect accents or impersonations of the "Lads from Liverpool"; "Ticket To Ride" did provide a joyful presentation of this timeless music and encouraged audience participation, to deliver a concert that was memorable, very enjoyable to listen to, and fun to sing with. What a great way to celebrate "Mothers Day"! If you like the Beatles, I would heartily recommend this show.
