West End Beatles show Let It Be has announced that it has recouped its £1.6 million capitalisation costs.
The recoupment – meaning it has made back the money initially invested in the production – comes as the show finishes its 18-week run at the Prince of Wales Theatre and prepares to transfer to the Savoy Theatre from February 1, 2013.
Producer Jamie Hendry said: “While every show strives to recoup its costs over the course of its run, every producer knows that it is an all too uncommon event, and a huge cause for celebration when it happens.”
Let It Be is a concert tribute featuring 40 of The Beatles’ greatest hits including: I Wanna Hold Your Hand, Hard Day’s Night, Day Tripper, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Strawberry Fields, When I’m 64 and Get Back.
It is produced by Jamie Hendry Productions, Annerin Productions, BB Promotion, Rubin Fogel & Julian Stoneman Associates.
