A Little Red Company and Critical Stages production

Created by Adam Brunes & Naomi Price

Starring Naomi Price with Mik Easterman, Andrew Johnson, Michael Manikus, and Jason McGregor

Naomi Price sings The Beatles in a smash-hit new musical theatre production.

From the creators of Rumour Has It and Wrecking Ball comes the must-see live music event of the year: Lady Beatle – a kaleidoscopic journey through the Beatles’ most monumental hits.

Starring Australian stage and screen star Naomi Price (The Voice Australia, Beautiful: The Carol King Musical, Ladies in Black) and inspired by true accounts, Lady Beatle is a terrific night out sound-tracked by the Beatles’ biggest chart toppers.

Flanked by a live band, Price transports audiences to 1960s Liverpool for a rollicking magical mystery tour. For the entire 70mins the audience is very much part of the ride, as Price riffs off-the-cuff, invites them to join in the big numbers, and ultimately has them on their feet for the show’s epic mega-mix finale dance party.

What people are saying

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

When the band plays and the voice soars, and the entire sold-out opening night crowd signs along, you know you’re at one of the best new shows of the decade. XS Entertainment

This stellar show re-imagines the greatest Beatles hits – we’re talking banger after banger here. Headliner Naomi Price is big and VERY cold, and will captivate you until the curtains close with your favourite Beatles tracks. The Urban List

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 there the setiments, for the first time. It’s some hard-core talent that can achieve that balance. Cultural Flanerie
