Epstein: The Man Who Made The Beatles - anniversary performance

Theatre news

A VERY special performance of Epstein: The Man Who Made The Beatles will take place on Wednesday, August 27, the anniversary of Brian Epstein’s death.

The play, which is about legendary music manager Brian Epstein, is currently midway through a six week run at Leicester Square Theatre and ends on Saturday, September 6, 2014.

The two-hander, starring Andrew Lancel and Will Finlason, imagines the brilliant but troubled man’s drug-fuelled final days whilst looking back upon his illustrious adult life and meteoric career – from his drama school days to managing the world’s biggest pop group.

Forty seven years on the play will be performed the very night that Brian Epstein was found dead in his London apartment on August 27, 1967 of a concluded accidental overdose at the age of 32. Epstein would have celebrated his 80th birthday this coming September 19.

A special post show Q & A will take place on the evening of August 27 hosted by TV presenter and showbiz reporter Neil Sean. On the panel will be actors Andrew Lancel and Will Finlason, Co-producer and Director Jen Heyes and Joe Flannery, lifelong friend and business partner of Brian Epstein. The Q and A will discuss his life and contribution to popular music.

A special show and Q & A ticket of £20 per person is available on this evening when quoting EPSTEIN20.
