All-New Production of Let It Be Brings Peace and Love to Dallas

You'll be encouraged to clap your hands, stomp your feet, and go as mad as you like during this fun Fab Four tribute.

All-New Production of Let It Be Brings Peace and Love to Dallas | Concert Review by Sherri Tilley | Dallas Summer Musicals | Dallas, Texas, USA

Travel back in time and forward again during this psychedelic celebration of The Beatles' musical journey through the decades of mop tops, flip flops, flower power, and the invention of color television. (You remember, back when people actually had to walk across the room in order to change the channel.)


You'll be encouraged to clap your hands, stomp your feet, and go as mad as you like as this spot-on Fab Four tribute delivers timeless, classic songs amidst dozens of flashing strobes, colored spotlights, kaleidoscopic video projections, and a groovy fog-like haze spilling across the stage floor. The blokes bringing their expressive British accents from across the pond include Neil Candelora (Paul McCartney), JT Curtis (George Harrison), Michael Gagliano (John Lennon), Chris McBurney (Ringo Starr), and Broadway's respected Jim Abbot (the Fifth Beatle) on keyboards.


Era-specific concert segments are divided by nostalgic commercials ('words from the sponsors') and vintage news footage thereby adding authenticity to the show and giving the guys time to change into a succession of iconic looks like the exotically-vibrant costumes of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. While the first half of the production contains a nod to the Ed Sullivan Show (She Loves You I Want to Hold Your Hand) and a re-creation of Shea Stadium (Twist and Shout, Daytripper), the all-new revamped second half quite-effectively imagines a scenario in which the group is reunited for what would've been John Lennon's birthday on October 9, 1980.


In addition to the group's collaborative hits (Penny Lane, Strawberry Fields Forever, Come Together, and more), the contributions of individual band members are showcased as well (Band on the Run by Paul McCartney and Wings, It Don't Come Easy by Ringo Starr, Watching the Wheels by John Lennon, and My Sweet Lord by George Harrison). A mellow acoustic rendition of Blackbird and an especially impressive version of While My Guitar Gently Weeps are, no doubt, show highlights.


So get your lighter (or, uh, cell phone flashlight) ready to sway overhead because (to quote Ringo) this show's all about peace and love Dallas; peace and love. With tickets starting at just $24.50, Let It Be plays in Dallas at the Music Hall at Fair Park March 7-19, 2017, presented by Dallas Summer Musicals and then runs in Fort Worth at Bass Performance Hall March 21-26, 2017, presented by Performing Arts Fort Worth.
