Epstein: The Man Who Made The Beatles, the play is returning

11th April, 2014

We are delighted to announce our partners, Epstein: The Man Who Made The Beatles are heading to London's Leicester Square Theatre with their show.

The cast and producers visited London’s Leicester Square Theatre to launch the show’s initial six-week run at the venue this summer. During April of this year Brian Epstein was posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame after a campaign from fans and also the unveiling of a commemorative blue plaque at the London offices of Epstein’s company NEMS.

Epstein: The Man Who Made The Beatles is the untold story and window into the private world of the music entrepreneur whose stellar career as The Beatles' manager made him a household name yet whose controversial personal life remained very much in the closet. Brian died in 1967 of an accidental overdose at the age of 32.

Acclaimed stage and TV star Andrew Lancel and actor Will Finlason will return to the roles of Brian Epstein and the fictional character ‘This Boy’ respectively, for which they each received rave reviews during the initial run of Epstein: The Man Who Made The Beatles in Liverpool, where the show premiered in November 2012 as part of the city’s official Beatles 50th Anniversary celebrations at the Epstein Theatre.

Andrew Lancel said: “As a huge Beatles fan I am absolutely delighted to be returning to London and this role, wonderfully written by Andrew Sherlock. Especially in the year that would have seen Brian Epstein celebrate his 80th Birthday. It was great to see and chat to so many media representatives from outlets all over the world who wanted to hear more about the play.”
