SEE ‘LET IT BE’

BY SAMANTHA BAITA | Staff Writer
[email protected]

1 The tour of the Broadway
show “Let It Be – A Cele-
bration of the Music of the Beat-
les” comes to the Sunrise Theatre
stage in Fort Pierce Sunday at 7
p.m. Seen by over 2 million people
worldwide since it opened in the
summer of 2013, “Let It Be” is jam-
packed with more than 40 of the
Beatles’ greatest hits, covering the
Fab Four’s meteoric rise from their
humble beginnings in Liverpool’s
Cavern Club through the heights
of Beatlemania, to their later stu-
dio masterpieces. The perform-
ers do covers of early tracks like
“Twist and Shout” and “She Loves
You,” as well as global mega-hits
“Yesterday,” “Hey Jude,” “Come
Together” and, of course, “Let It
Be.”

2 The New York Times critic
Anita Gates called it the best
by far of three Beatle tributes on
Broadway – but then, she cringed
through one, 1977’s “Beatle-
mania,” when the quartet was still
alive. The other was 2010’s “Rain.”
