Bop to the beat of the Beatles at BRT’s Beatlemania

The show runs July 25–29 at Bristol Riverside Theatre

The Times

Bristol Riverside Theatre recaptures the excitement, the mood and the frantic intensity of the 1960s when Beatlemania Now performs live on stage July 25–29. Against a backdrop of stunning images, which evoke memories of some of the most turbulent decades of modern times, this tribute concert features more than 30 songs spanning the Fab Four’s legendary career, from Ed Sullivan to Abbey Road, with authentic costumes and instruments.

“From the innocence of Kennedy’s Camelot to the hopes of Martin Luther King’s dream to the horrors of the Vietnam War — these historic events influenced the music of the Beatles. Beatlemania Now travels from their pop music beginnings in Liverpool to their triumphant invasion of America in 1964 to their eventual breakup in a show that will have audiences singing along and dancing in the aisles,” said BRT artistic director Keith Baker.

Performances are Wednesday, July 25 at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.; Thursday, July 26 at 7:30 p.m.; Friday, July 27 at 8 p.m.; Saturday, July 28 at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m.; and Sunday, July 29 at 3 p.m. Tickets starting at $30 are available by visiting brtstage.org or calling the box office at 215–785–0100.
