Let It Be : In Bed With the Beatles
What better way to perk up a Wednesday than a trip to the Waldorf Hilton to see cast members from a West End show perform live to you whilst you sup bubbly and eat cake. Oh and then later, I got to interview them in bed. No this wasn’t a dream. This was my life yesterday (when all my troubles seemed so far away #sorrynotsorry)
SO basically to coincide with the reopening of Let It Be at the Garrick Theatre the Waldorf Hilton has a installed a BEATLES themed suite to celebrate it’s love of the fab four. It is a lush room decked out with Beatles memorabilia like mugs, records (with a proper record player), posters, games, DVDs etc. AMAZING if you are a super fan!
To celebrate the launch and this fabulously British hotel room and the return of Let It Be, the chaps from the show performed a few songs for us in the room and then later we moved to the bedroom….BUT first things first…the music! Watch our video below from the event to hear amazing acoustic performances of “We Can Work It Out,” “If I Fell” and “Here Comes The Sun” from the lads. #Swoon.
In Bed With The Beatles
SO, yeah, essentially I lived every Nanna’s dream and snuggled up in a big bed with 4 members of the Beatles. Ish. I was with Paul Mannion who plays George Harrison, Ben Cullingworth who Plays Ringo, Ryan Coath who plays John Lennon and Peter John Jackson who plays Paul Mcartney. I asked the guys some quick questions to find out their favourite Beatle, favourite Beatles song, favourite on stage costume and whether or not they think Kanye West would be a fabulous modern day addition to the band….Find out what went on in that big bed in the video below!
What Do I Think of Let It Be?
I have seen Let It Be three times on the West End and I love it! It is not a traditional theatre show, it is more like a concert. If you like the music of the Beatles then you will love the show. Fact.
Let It Be runs at the Garrick Theatre until 27th September 2015.
