Let It Be

Set in the turbulent times of the 1960s and 1970s, Let it Be, follows a group of teenage friends and their intertwining stories during the height of the Vietnam War. The teens struggle with the unrest of the country, their loss of innocence and the long journey home.

Told solely through the stirring music and compelling lyrics of their greatest hits, including “Come Together,” “Blackbird,” and more, the staging and choreography propel the story forward allowing the focus to remain on the genius of The Beatles and the impact of their music. Let it Be proves The Beatles are just as relevant today, as yesterday.  A winning title for schools, colleges, and community and professional theatres.
