A new musical based on songs of The Beatles has been announced.
She Loves You is a new original musical featuring the Lennon & McCartney song catalogue.
It will feature more than 40 of John Lennon & Paul McCartney’s beloved hits from The Beatles years 1963-1970 including Let It Be, She Loves You, Blackbird, A Hard Day’s Night, With a Little Help From My Friends, Help!, The Long and Winding Road and Across the Universe.
Presented by Danish producer Mikkel Rønnow and Nordic Musical Partners, the production will have its world premiere in March 2022 at the Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen, starring Danish singer and actress Maria Lucia (The Beauty and the Beast, The Sound of Music on stage and the Danish film dubbing of Disney’s Frozen) leading a cast of 24 musical performers.
Further worldwide productions are said to be in the pipeline.
A teaser shares: “She Loves You revolves around a modern family and their complex and contemporary journey with love: the naïve, young, infatuating love, the long-term established love compelled by children and careers and the lifelong, enduring and ultimate love, flourishing in later life.”
She Loves You will be directed by Thom Southerland (Titanic The Musical, Harold and Maude and Southwark Playhouse productions of Parade, Grand Hotel and Mack and Mabel) who also co-wrote the book with Shaun McKenna (stage adaptations of Ladies in Lavender and Peter James’ novels A Perfect Murder, Dead Simple and Looking Good Dead), adaptations by Jokum Rohde (Ivanhoe, Thor and recently The Carnival Murder), orchestrations by Steve Sidwell and musical supervision will be by Mikkel Rønnow.
