After great success at Edinburgh Fringe and King's Head Theatre, London 2015, solo drama "A life with the Beatles" is coming to Portree's Aros Centre this evening (Mar 14)
2017 is the 50th anniversary of the release of the ground-breaking Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, a focal point of Davide Verazzani's ‘A Life with the Beatles’, which follows the story of The Fab Four from the unique perspective of Neil Aspinall, who served the band for 46 years, from driver to CEO of Apple Corps – always by their side, knew everyone and everything.
Veteran Glasgow-based actor Ian Sexon reprises his effervescent energy in this intimate, hour long solo drama. He depicts the progression of the band from initial formation to the period after their manager, Brian Epstein’s death, jumping in and out of the characters along the way in Davide Verazzani's charming play.
A fab excuse for Beatles fans to wallow in nostalgia or the perfect entry point for someone needing a brief history of the quintessential band from a close source; either way, a great night of theatre is guaranteed.
