A psychedelic reimagining of the Beatles’ greatest hits.
Starring Australian stage and screen siren Naomi Price (Beautiful: The Carole King Musical; Ladies in Black; Rumour Has It), Lady Beatle is a rollicking magical mystery tour soundtracked by the Beatles’ biggest chart toppers, including Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds, Eleanor Rigby, Yellow Submarine, Blackbird, Here Comes the Sun, With A Little Help From My Friends and Penny Lane.
Rediscover the Beatles’ immortal catalogue reimagined and reinterpreted through sparkling original arrangements performed live by this world-class vocalist and a virtuosic band of Australia’s top musicians.
Lady Beatle premiered at La Boite Theatre in May 2017, presented by La Boite.
“Utterly brilliant… I found the show so powerfully sentimental that I was misty-eyed for much of it and was so thankful to hear the soundtrack of my life played with such verve and love.” – The Courier-Mail
“This stellar show re-imagines the greatest Beatles hits—we’re talking banger after banger here. Headliner Naomi Price is big and VERY bold, and will captivate you until the curtains close with your favourite Beatles tracks.” – The Urban List
“The magic of theatre is that, for a brief slice of time, a group of people come together in the same space and share an experience unique to them. Lady Beatle creates this shared experience really strongly in a cocoon of fun, security, kindness, and hope in this chaotic, Trumpian world. Ultimately this is a show about everything the Beatles stood for – equality, love and peace..” – Aussie Theatre
“Fresh and unpredictable, with some truly beautiful arrangements only enhancing the originals. Rather than wishing they hadn’t altered a classic, I found myself actually hearing the lyrics, and therefore the sentiments, for the first time. It’s some hard-core talent that can achieve that balance.” – Cultural Flanerie
“An infectious rediscovery of the band’s iconic, diverse catalogue anew, channelled through a sole female voice. Its song curation and story craftedness combine to make Lady Beatle an example of cabaret at its very best; to make you laugh, cry and smile in hope for peace, equality and love.” – Blue Curtains Bris
“Naomi Price has the kind of voice that can raise goosebumps on arms when singing any song – combining this talent with the music of The Beatles is a stroke of genius… Fans of The Beatles will love the music, fans of cabaret will adore Price’s energy and emotional range.” – Australian Stage
“When the band plays and the voice soars, and the entire sold-out opening night crowd sings along, you know you’re at one of the best new shows of the decade.” – XS Entertainment
“What a pocket rocket Price is, backed by a band of four incredibly talented musicians who took us all on a journey with skill and dexterity… A class act!” – ArtsHub
“Filled with fizz and pop, ribald riffing and cheeky humour… If you didn’t leave feeling myriad messy beautiful emotions, it can probably be safely said that you’re a robot.” – Scenestr
