New Beatles, Spice Girls Musicals to Open in London

Heads up, Beatles fans! A new tribute show celebrating the 50th anniversary of The Beatles' first single will open in London's West End next month.

Let It Be, which had a brief run on Broadway with the title Rain, begins previews at the Prince of Wales theatre on September 14. (Mamma Mia!, which has held a long tenure at the Prince of Wales, will transfer to the Novello.) According to the BBC, more than 30 Beatles tracks will be included in the show, among them such standards as "Twist and Shout," "A Hard Day's Night," "Yesterday" and "Daytripper." The show marks the first time the theatrical rights to The Beatles' back catalogue have been granted to a West End show.

The West End will also get another "tribute musical" (the term "jukebox" is becoming passe) when Viva Forever!, a show that will feature the songs of the Spice Girls, opens in winter.
