A new musical chronicling The Beatles sessions at Abbey Road studios are to be re-created in a new musical showing albums such as Revolver and Sgt. Pepper’s were made.
The show’s director, Stig Edgren, told The Times, “It will be a musical documentary giving audiences an honest, respectful and accurate re-creation of how music history was made”.
The Times story reports that a replica of Abbey Road’s Studio Two will be built at London’s Royal Albert Hall for the production, which is set to open next April.
Edgren also insisted that actors will not impersonate The Beatles, adding: “I didn’t want it to be another lookalike show…We’re not trying to look like The Beatles. We [are] trying to sound like them. The idea is you’re watching them in recording session mode.”
