BEATLES TRIBUTE BAND BLASTS INTO BRIDGEPORT

BONNIE GOLDBERG

Those four lucky and plucky lads from Liverpool are legendary in the world of rock and roll.  From the moment John, Paul, George and Ringo took up their guitars and drums, it was magic.  Ed Sullivan introduced this famous quartet to the United States on his really big television show and the rest, as they say, is musical history.

In tribute to The Beatles, the Downtown Cabaret Theatre in Bridgeport is bringing back “She Loves You!” for a return engagement weekends until Sunday, February 27.  If you have a love affair with these mop top guys, what better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day!

These great look- and sound- alike fellows hail from New Jersey and Connecticut and a pair from England, Alan LeBoeuf as Paul McCartney, Carmine Grippo as Ringo Starr, John Brosnan as George Harrison and Adam Hastings as John Lennon.

All the top ten hit parade of tunes are featured, from “I Want to Hold Your Hand” “All My Lovin’,” “A Hard Day’s Night” “Roll Over, Beethoven,” “Help!,” “Yesterday,” “Penny Lane, “ “Hey, Jude”  and “Let It Be” to name a few.  You can even sing-a-long to “We All Live in a Yellow Submarine.”

This personable and talented foursome play their hearts out for nearly two hours of historic Beatles fare, along with a visual and auditory journey through the 1960’s, with film clips and commercials.  Their costumes and hairstyles, including moustaches, mark their transitions through the years.

For tickets ($39.50), call Downtown Cabaret Theatre, 263 Golden Hill Street, Bridgeport (exit 2, off 27A, off I-95) at 203-576-1636 or online at www.downtowncabaret.org.  Performances are Friday at 7:30 p.m., Saturday at 5:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. and Sunday at 5:30 p.m.  Remember to bring a picnic or snacks to share.

If you’re a Beatlemania fan, then run right over to the Downtown Cabaret Theatre’s wonderful tribute to those popular performers and icons of rock and roll.  They weren’t called the Fab Four without good reason.
