Yesterday and Today: The Interactive Beatles Experience
Mar 7, 2014 7:30pm (Arrive Early)
Paramount Theatre in Goldsboro
Paramount Performing Arts Series
Friday, March 7th, 2014 - 7:30pm (Arrive Early)
What's your favorite Beatles song? When asked this question, people don't just tell you the name of the song. They tell you a story associated with that song â€“ about a first love, a first kiss or a touching story about a parent or the loss of a loved one. Simply put, The Beatles music is the soundtrack to our lives. Yesterday and Today gets to the heart of that. This show takes the incredible music of The Beatles and personalizes it with the stories and perspectives of audience members. The show becomes a therapeutic musical session with laughter and tears and personal stories that connect the audience, band and performers in a way that no other show can.
The performance consists of 2 1/2 to 3 hours of music, depending on the veracity of audience interaction. The set list contains songs chosen by audience members prior to the show and again at intermission. Audience members' stories will be told throughout an evening that captures the importance of The Beatles music and how it touches all of us individually. Yesterday and Today is a unique Beatles tribute show. The Yesterday and Today cast does not dress as The Beatles, nor attempt to execute "Liverpudlian" accents. The concentration is on presenting the music in a personal, giving, exciting, and well-executed manner.
As audience members come into the theatre, they are invited to go to the Song Request table. To make requests, people fill out a card giving their names, the songs they are requesting and the reason they have chosen those songs. The band then organizes the requests into that night's set list. The show is then led by interacting with the audience members, drawing out more of the stories with the songs, driving the show's narrative. An incredibly electric atmosphere is created where audience members feel as important to the show as the band. It is important to emphasize that because every Yesterday and Today performance is driven by its unique audience; each performance is different, making this a show that has a long shelf-life in theaters.
"Foot-stomping, clapping in unison, singing along and outright screaming from the audience, especially during the all-out panic that erupted when a little ditty named "Revolution" was played!" -- David Williams, Omaha City Weekly
Tickets: $22/Adults, $20/Students/Seniors 65+/Military
