Bill Elms and Jen Heyes Productions Ltd present Epstein: The Man Who Made The Beatles by Andrew Sherlock, at Leicester Square Theatre on 5th August 2014, following previews from 30th July 2014, and closing on 6th September 2014.
Directed by Jen Heyes, the show stars Andrew Lancel and newcomer Will Finlason who are reprising their roles from the Liverpool production.
Epstein: The Man Who Made The Beatles is a new long-awaited production about the enigmatic Brian Epstein – the music entrepreneur whose major career as The Beatles manager made him a household name yet whose contentious personal life remained very much hidden. Brian died in 1967 of an accidental overdose at the age of 32.
Acclaimed stage and TV actor Andrew Lancel (Coronation Street, The Bill) plays Brian Epstein and with newcomer Will Finlason as ‘This Boy’ – a role that personifies the soul of 60s Liverpool. This two-hander play imagines this brilliant but troubled man’s drug-fuelled final days whilst looking back upon his celebrated adult life and meteoric career from his drama school days to managing the world’s biggest pop group – a must-see chance to discover a previously unexplored story and celebrate a true icon of 1960’s popular culture – a man who shaped music and style across the world.
Epstein: The Man Who Made The Beatles is brought to you by Bill Elms and Jen Heyes Productions Ltd, written by Andrew Sherlock and directed by Jen Heyes. This multi-media play with live music premiered to critical acclaim in November 2012 as part of the official programme of Liverpool’s 50th Anniversary of the Beatles.
