Ticket to Ride is an award winning, smash hit musical biography of the
Beatles as seen through the eyes of manager Brian Epstein and featuring
Beatle tribute band “Abbey Road.” In April, 2009, the multi-media
production’s World Premiere opened to packed houses and critical acclaim.
The three week run in Orange County, California commanded 92% theatre
occupancy and rave reviews from the Los Angeles Times, Orange County
Register, Backstage West, the San Gabriel Valley News, Pasadena Star and
the Whittier Daily News. The show earned a prestigious Roar of the Crowd
award, which means it was the highest rated production by audiences in
Southern California for the week of April 26, 2009. The show was rated
higher than “Ain’t Misbehavin” at the Ahmanson Theatre, “Dirty Dancing”
at the Pantages Theatre and the national tour of “Hairspray.” The family
friendly musical is widely believed by the industry to be the best Beatle
show in the world.
More than a basic Beatles tribute concert, Ticket to Ride takes the audience
back to the pivotal moments and locales of the Beatles career. Beginning at
the legendary Cavern Club in Liverpool where they meet their manager,
Brian Epstein, the audience continues their journey to venues that include
the Ed Sullivan Show, Shea Stadium’s 50,000 + screaming fans, the Abbey
Road recording studios and their final live performance on the rooftop of
their Apple Corp office building. The character of Brian Epstein serves as
narrator throughout the show.
The band’s custom-tailored costumes, vintage instruments, Liverpudlian
dialect and precise attention to every detail recreate the magic, music, wit
and wisdom of the total Beatle phenomenon. The four musician/actors, who
were cast from over 300 applicants, capture the unique personality,
physicality and charm of the Beatle they portray, including the Fab Four’s
familiar head bobs, toe taps and patter between songs. The musicians thrill
audiences with tight harmonies and flawless note for note instrumental
renditions of Beatle hits.
With a script written by Beatlemania original cast member P.M. Howard, the
show takes the audience back to January 1964, when Americans saw the
Beatles for the first time on the Ed Sullivan Show, playing I Wanna Hold
Your Hand. Progressing through their various musical stages, the audience
re-experiences the psychedelic era of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club
Band, the creation of the haunting Yesterday and the raucous rock and roll of
Revolution.
