From the creators of celebrated Australian works Rumour Has It and Wrecking Ball comes the must-see live music event of the year: Lady Beatle – a modern memory play set to a kaleidoscopic soundtrack of the Beatles’ most monumental hits.
Starring Australian stage and screen siren Naomi Price (Beautiful: The Carole King Musical; Ladies in Black; Rumour Has It) and inspired by true accounts, Lady Beatle weaves a fantastical tale soundtracked by the Beatles’ biggest chart toppers, including Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds, Eleanor Rigby, Yellow Submarine, Blackbird, Here Comes the Sun, With A Little Help From My Friends and Penny Lane.
Take a ride to 1960s Liverpool and rediscover The Beatles’ immortal catalogue reimagined and reinterpreted through sparkling original arrangements performed live by this world-class vocalist and a virtuosic band of Australia’s top musicians.
Lady Beatle reunites Matilda Award-winning collaborators Naomi Price and Adam Brunes in their highly anticipated third pop-culture cabaret, promising a heady trip of psychedelic fun, magical entertainment, and wide-eyed wonderment.
“Lady Beatle is an enigmatic and wholly original character; she could be The Beatles’ biggest fan, or she could be someone entirely different and I take such delight in teasing out her true identity until she makes her swansong,” said Price.
This pop culture cabaret has wowed audiences and critics alike since debuting at La Boite’s Roundhouse Theatre in 2017 and now returns to twist and shout through thirty-two venues across Australia as part of a three-month tour.
“Utterly brilliant… I found the show so powerfully sentimental that I was misty-eyed for much of it and was so thankful to hear the soundtrack of my life played with such verve and love.” – The Courier-Mail
Lady Beatle is currently playing at LaBoite’s Roundhouse Theatre until 10 August before touring across Australia. For more information, including performance dates and venues, visit: www.criticalstages.com.au for details.
