Backbeat, Musical Tracing the Birth of the Beatles, Heads to West End's Duke of York's; David Leveaux Directs

Backbeat, a stage adaptation of the 1994 film about the birth of the Beatles, is heading to the West End’s Duke of York’s Theatre, beginning performances Sept. 24 prior to an official opening Oct. 10th.First seen at Glasgow’s Citizen’s Theatre in 2010, it is co-written by Iain Softley (who directed and co-wrote the film) and playwright Stephen Jeffreys, and will be directed by David Leveaux (Broadway revivals of Nine and Fiddler on the Roof, and most recently represented on Broadway by his production of Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia that originated in the West End).In a press statement, producer Karl Sydow commented, "Backbeat at the Duke Of York Theatre will allow people the experience of being at the birth of the Beatles. It tells a story that many music fans may not know, set to a musical backdrop that absolutely defined the early 60s. Next year will mark 50 years since the Beatles released their first single, and I am proud to be bringing their early days to life in the West End."
