Amoeba Hollywood In-Store Cast Performance And CD Signing On February 4
The Independent called Backbeat: “A dynamic blast evoking the Beatles’ raw musical potential” while the Evening Standard hailed the musical as a “back-story to cherish” and the Sunday Express raved: “edgy and cool.”
After storming stages in London, Backbeat, the hit play with music about the Beatles’ Hamburg years, is now winning over audiences with its first U.S. performances this month at the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles. (The production continues through March 1, 2013.) Directed by five-time Tony Award® nominee David Leveaux, the production follows five rowdy working class lads from the docks of Liverpool – John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Pete Best and Stuart Sutcliffe – to the raucous clubs of West Germany’s seedy red-light district. Backbeat is produced by Karl Sydow in association with The Glasgow Citizens Theatre and adapted for the stage by Iain Softley & Stephen Jeffreys, based on the Universal Pictures film.
