Sloppy , Aug 06, 2013
reviewer: Zeck and Beth from New Jersey
Saw let it be opening week, I am a huge Beatles fan and am
amused at comments you need to be a senior to get the
music, The nearest thing to seeing The Beatles live come on
already that's watching Sir Paul McCartney who as performed
all of the songs in the show live and is amazing!

The fifth Beatle if the actor is playing George Martin then he
should be behind a mixing desk
the later beatles songs should feature thr otherr fifth beatle
Billy Preston who played and sang on Abbey Road and Let It
Be.
As for comments its racist to comment that a white actor
should play a African-American, would there not be an uproar
if John Lennon was played woman?

It all just goes to show how poorly thought out this production
is its nothing new just Rain repackaged and sold back with a
British flag attached.
The guy playing Paul reeds to use more gaffer tape on the
toupee too it all but fell off and opening night his British
Liverpool accent is also very like the show lame

Go see McCartney

Forget all the negativity - judge for yourself , Aug 04, 2013
reviewer: Stephen C. from Vancouver B.C.
August 3, 2013
Went to see Let it Be in NYC last might, knowing that it was
essentially a "Beatles" concert by a tribute band, with no story
per se. Was not disappointed in the least, had a great time and
thoroughly enjoyed the evening. A bit like attending the
Beatles concert that I never had the chance to attend. I was
only 13 (my wife was only 10) & had no money in August 1964
when the Beatles played Empire Stadium in Vancouver, B.C.
Most people forget (or are too young to remember) that the
Beatles only toured for a couple of years in North America in
the mid-1960s before becoming essentially a studio band.
Therefore, unless you are at least 65 years old (I am 62) you
are probably too young to have ever had the opportunity to
hear the Beatles live. I am thinking that many of the negative
comments are coming from those too young to know? Now is
it Motown, which we saw the night before, no it is not. It was
entertaining nevertheless in its own way. Top notch musicians
& vocals.

Had a Fun Night, Aug 03, 2013
reviewer: Julie from New York, New York
We brought our 14 year old son to NYC and decided to bring him to "Let It Be" last night. We all had a great time! I was not looking for an exact replica of the band so the details about Billy Preston and playing with the right hand vs the left hand didn't bother me. If you want to have fun this is a good show.

Good fun, Aug 01, 2013
reviewer: Bernie Hanratty from New York, New York
I came on to write a review about the show, but I'm horrified at
people's reaction to the white guy! Appalling! I find it incredibly
racist of these people, complaining about a white guy playing
keys. It shouldn't matter what colour this person is, the show is
about the music and the guy is certainly not playing Billy
Preston in the show at all. In fact, when he played 'In my life'
and was introduced as 'George Martin', I don't suppose people
realise that it actually was George Martin that played the solo
on the record!

It's very unfortunate that some people would actually think that
'Let it Be' is in any way racist, by simply hiring a white
musician who isn't even playing Billy Preston anyway! What a
shame opinions like this spoil it for everyone else.

Go see it and enjoy the music!
