Presse : "It simply offers an evening of faithfully executed Beatles hits. This kind of show is normally dubbed a juke-box musical, but I'd call it Tussaud Theatre: it asks us to gaze for a couple of hours on replicas of reality...The whole evening, however, is an exercise in faintly necrophiliac nostalgia...I go to the theatre hoping to be surprised, challenged or given a new perspective on reality. What I don't want is to see the musical, of all forms, turned into a gaudy museum."
Michael Billington for The Guardian

"After two glorious hours I left the show feeling as high as a kite. There is no attempt to shoehorn the Beatles hits into a fictional story, as in Mamma Mia!, nor is it a bio-drama about the Beatles’ rise and bitter break-up. Let It Be is essentially a concert with a brilliant covers band offering a non-stop parade of hits in more or less chronological order from the group’s early songs to tracks from their last recorded album, Abbey Road...the music is almost spookily faithful to the originals...For those who love the Beatles, this show is as about as good as it gets."
Charles Spencer for The Daily Telegraph

"Enjoyable production."
Paul Taylor for The Independent

"If you like Beatles songs, you will be reasonably happy. If you want storytelling or character analysis, you may not...I suppose I shouldn’t be such a brute. The music is well played and the singing is mainly in tune."
Quentin Letts for The Daily Mail
