New Beatles Musical In The Works


A new Beatles musical is in the works, and the show's production team is currently looking for actors to portray the Fab Four.

The show, called Let It Be, is scheduled to open at the Prince of Wales Theatre in September.

"We need two sets of five Beatles," casting director James Hopson told Liverpool Daily Post.

"What the show is made up of is a lot of later Beatles' material that the band never performed live, so as well as John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, we are looking for a fifth person who can play the keyboards. I'm hoping to be inundated with Liverpudlians who can play and sing, and if they look a little bit like the Beatles then that's helpful - but what we're really looking for is high-quality musicians," he added.

Those interested will have the chance to audition for the show in London's West End by heading to the famous Cavern Club in Liverpool on May 1. There will be another casting call at London's Gielgud Theatre on May 8.
