Photo Flash: Refreshened Edition of She Loves You! returns to Downtown Cabaret Theatre
Downtown Cabaret Theatre presents a 'REFRESHENED EDITION'' of She Loves You! to celebrate the Beatles 50th Anniversary featuring five additional Beatles songs not featured in the previous engagements, plus new media footage and a few surprising additions.
On February 9th, 1964, The Beatles, in their Edwardian suits and mop top haircuts, made their first appearance on American television - LIVE- on "The Ed Sullivan Show." With everything from Black Suits to Mop Tops and the Lonely Hearts Club Band by a cast that dazzled audiences during its previous SOLD-OUT engagements a few seasons ago, the audience will be taken back in time via classic video footage from the original "Ed Sullivan Show," and who knows...Ed Sullivan just might show up to introduce the Beatles all over again. She Loves You! will guide audiences through the 1960's "decade of love" set to a live and on stage musical re-creation of The Beatles, the world's greatest band.
The return engagement by popular demand of She Loves You! the 'refreshened edition'' opens at Bridgeport''s Downtown Cabaret Theatre on Friday, November 1 and continues (Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays) through Sunday, November 17 (2013).
The Connecticut Post said "She Loves You! is perfection!" and The New York Times echoed "It''s all about Love For The Beatles!" She Loves You! is nearly two non-stop hours of such songs as "I Want to Hold Your Hand," "Please Please Me," "All My Lovin''," "I Saw Her Standing There," "Ticket to Ride," "A Hard Day''s Night," "Roll Over Beethoven," "Can''t Buy Me Love," plus "Help!," "Sgt. Pepper''s Lonely Hearts Club Band," "With a Little Help From My Friends," "We All Live in a Yellow Submarine," "Let It Be," "Hey Jude," "Get Back," "Twist & Shout," "She Loves You" and among numerous other favorites.
In addition to The Beatles music, classic television footage, vintage newsreel clips, retro commercials and bits from other variety shows, the 'refreshened edition'' of She Loves You! transports the audience back in time by re-capturing the sights and sounds of an era of love and turbulence perfectly underscored by the music that made the world come together with a little help from friends and She Loves You!
The cast of She Loves You! features Alan LeBoeuf, whose first major stage break was playing the role of Paul McCartney for two years in Broadway's Beatlemania, John Brosnan, who has extensive experience playing all the eras of George Harrison''s career - from the early 'black suit' days of The Beatles through his solo career; New Haven native Carmine Grippo, who has appeared on numerous television shows and in concerts as Ringo Starr as well as touring in various Beatle Shows to Japan, Italy, France, Germany, UK, Japan, China, and throughout the United States and Steve Craig, who is considered to be one of the most talented Beatles tribute performers in the world, not only for his musical abilities but also for his striking resemblance to John Lennon.
From true fans of the past to newer generations discovering the sounds of "The Beatles" and their impact and influences on contemporary music, She Loves You! is a treat for the senses guaranteed to entertain audiences of all ages.
It''s the return engagement of a show that the Fairfield Weekly headlined as "The BEATLES invade Bridgeport!" and The (Norwalk) Hour hailed "The Audience was ecstatic!"
