The show has recently returned to the West End for an 8 month run at the Garrick Theatre.

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.
The show is 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.

The music defined a generation, captured the hearts and ideals of millions, and now you can relive the memories in the city where it all began as Annerin Productions bring Let It Be to Liverpool.
Jeff Parry from Annerin Productions said:
“I could not have dreamed as a nine year old living in Canada, having received my first Beatles album that I would be producing a show about the band in their hometown 51 years later. Destiny has some strange coincidences.
“Having been a Beatles fan since a young age I studied the origins of the Beatles and Liverpool. I have visited Liverpool many times, most recently when ‘Let It Be’ played at the Empire Theatre. I was overwhelmed with the Liverpudlians show of support and thanks to me 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.”
The show will officially launch the completion of a £2.8m refurbishment of the Royal Court. This will give audiences the chance to see the new foyer, box office, circle bar and terrace. There will also be improved access with a lift to all floors.
