Backbeat

The birth of one of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll bands in history is told in the new dramatic musical Backbeat, which will have its American premiere and pre-Broadway presentation at the Ahmanson Theatre.

Backbeat, the story of how the Beatles ‘became’ the Beatles, is co-written by Iain Softley and Stephen Jeffreys, based on the 1994 Universal Pictures film by Softley, Michael Thomas and Stephen Ward. “Backbeat” is directed by five-time Tony Award nominee David Leveaux.

Featuring the all-time rock ‘n’ roll classics that the Beatles cut their teeth on – “Money,” “Long Tall Sally,” “Twist and Shout,” “Good Golly Miss Molly,” “Please Mr. Postman,” “Rock ‘n’ Roll Music” and more, Backbeat is set in 1960 when John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Pete Best (the drummer before Ringo Starr joined the group) and Stuart Sutcliffe (the band’s original bassist) embarked on their journey from the docks of Liverpool to the red light district of Hamburg. There they worked in the clubs of the tawdry Reeperbahn, performing rock ‘n’ roll covers night after night, all the while honing what would become the Beatles’ sound.
