New concert paying tribute to The Beatles, “In My Life — A Musical Theatre Tribute to the Beatles,” will be at the Herberger Theater at 7 p.m. on Sunday, March 12.While many of us don’t have the opportunity to see the two surviving Beatles, Paul McCartney or Ringo Starr, live in concert these days, the closest thing to watching an actual Beatles concert will be “In My Life – A Musical Theatre Tribute to the Beatles.”You mean just another tribute band? No, because not all tribute bands are alike.This one portrays the Beatles—John Lennon (Nathaniel Bott), Paul McCartney (Christopher Overall), George Harrison (Zak Schaffer) and Ringo Starr (Axel Clarke)—as authentically as possible, from their singing to the myriad of guitars used throughout the band’s decade-long career.(photo by Michelle Fairless)Listening to songs like “Penny Lane” or “I Want To Hold Your Hand” from this tribute band is almost like listening to the original icons themselves, according to a press release. The cast members are age appropriate for The Beatles, between 22-32 years of age.While the great repertoire of songs bind this musical together, the audience also gets the opportunity to relive the most important moments of The Beatles’ epic legacy, which spans the entire 1960s period.The actors that portray the band members connect with the crowd through their lovable sense of humors and cheeky banter, the release stated.As one watches The Beatles progress throughout that decade, the band’s manager Brian Epstein (Murphy Martin) makes his presence known throughout the musical, narrating his side of the story starting from his discovery of the Fab Four at the Cavern Club in Liverpool up until after the release of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.
