Over 100 guests Came Together for the launch of the international hit show Let It Be at Liverpool’s Hard Days Night Hotel and they had plenty to Shout about when producer Jeff Parry from Annerin Productions, announced the names of the brand new cast who will play the Fab Four in the hit Beatles show.

Paul Canning will play John, with Emanuele Angeletti as Paul, Luke Roberts as Ringo and John Brosnan as George, with all four performing a medley of hits in front of an invited audience including The President of The Dutch Beatles Fan Club.

The show which celebrates the music of The Beatles comes to The Four Boys Who Shook The World hometown in just four weeks’ time to mark the official re-launch of the multi-million pound refurbishment of the Liverpool Royal Court Theatre. Direct from London’s West End, LET IT BE will run for 5½ weeks from Thursday 8 October – Saturday 14 November 2015, with the opening coinciding with what would have been John Lennon’s 75th birthday on Friday 9th October.

The smash hit show has established itself as one of the West End’s most popular shows when it originally opened at the Prince of Wales Theatre in September 2012 before transferring for a year-long run at the Savoy Theatre from January 2013 – February 2014. The show has recently returned to the West End for an 8 month run at the Garrick Theatre.

Seen by over 1 million people worldwide, LET IT BE continues to delight audiences across the globe, having recently performed to audiences in Germany, Japan, Moscow, and France. LET IT BE showcases the music of the world’s most successful rock ‘n’ roll band, in a spectacular concert charting the band’s meteoric rise from their humble beginnings in Liverpool’s Cavern Club, through the height of Beatlemania, to their later studio masterpieces.

Jeff Parry from Annerin Productions said at the launch: “I could not have dreamed as a nine year old living in Canada, having received my first Beatles album, that I would one day be producing a show about the band in their hometown. Destiny has some strange coincidences.

“Having been a Beatles fan since a young age I studied the origins of the Beatles and Liverpool and have visited the city many times, most recently when "Let It Be" played at the Empire Theatre. I was overwhelmed with the Liverpudlian’s show of support and thanks for being part of the creation of the West End show. To say the least, "Let It Be" is helping to keep the music of the Beatles alive throughout the world and I am honoured to be bringing the show back to Liverpool.”


Let It Be will be at The Liverpool Royal Court from 8 October –14 November 2015, including Sundays. To book tickets: http://www.royalcourtliverpool.co.uk
