We spoke to the crowds at ‘Let It Be’ at the Royal Court
We were out in the crowds at the Royal Court Theatre to find out what people thought about the incredible ‘Let It Be’, a musical tribute to all things Beatles. With plenty of iconic songs crammed into the evening, it certainly had the audience on their feet and it has become the fastest selling show in Royal Court Liverpool’s history!
The West End smash hit opened last week and has had Box Office phones ringing louder than ever. It became the quickest show to sell more than 10,000 tickets, knocking the 2010 Christmas hit Little Scouse On The Prairie back into second place.
It also surpassed the biggest show of all Brick Up The Mersey Tunnels which took longer to reach that magic number.
Tickets are selling well across the board, with Sunday shows at 2pm & 7pm added to the run to meet demand. The venue have also been advertising for extra Box Office staff as the calls keep on coming in.
Direct from London’s West End, Let It Be will run for 5½ weeks up until Saturday 14 November 2015.
One of the West End’s most popular shows, the production originally opened at the Prince of Wales Theatre in September 2012, where it recouped its initial investment after just 18 weeks before transferring for a year-long run at the Savoy Theatre from January 2013 – February 2014.
Seen by over 1 million people worldwide, the show 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.
Packed with over forty of The Beatles’ greatest hits including: Twist and Shout, She Loves You and Drive My Car, as well as global mega-hits Yesterday, Hey Jude, Come Together and, of course, Let It Be. Travel back to the magical sixties when all you needed was love, and a little help from your friends!
Kevin Fearon, Chief Executive of Royal Court Liverpool, has been blown away by the audience response: “We knew that this was a big show when we spoke to Annerin about bringing it here but the response has been amazing. A show about the biggest band in the World, here in their home town has really hit the mark and the theatre is going to be packed to the rafters. The Box Office staff are exhausted!”
