In early 1964, News In Brief put it this way: “There are rumors abound that the [Beatles] are Britain’s revenge for the Boston Tea Party.”
In mid-December 1964, “I Want to Hold Your Hand” began playing on U.S. radio stations. Two months later, Liverpool’s Beatles first set foot in New York and charmed America at their first press conference, but the British Invasion officially began when the Fab Four sang four of their original songs (“All My Loving, “She Loves You,” I Saw Her Standing There” and “I Want to Hold Your Hand) on the February 9th airing of The Ed Sullivan Show. This performance alone captivated 60 percent of the American viewing audience and before you could say “Yeah, Yeah, Yeah!” Beatlemania swept the country.   Within a matter of weeks, Beatles went from complete unknowns to household names in the U.S. At one point in the spring, the band held down all top five positions on the Billboard “Hot 100,” a feat not accomplished before or since.  
“In My Life – A Musical Theatre Tribute to the Beatles” gives the audience the chance to “be there” at pivotal moments in the extraordinary career of The Beatles: Liverpool’s legendary Cavern Club,  their first American press conference, The Ed Sullivan Show, Shea Stadium, Abbey Road Studios and the final live performance on the rooftop of their Apple Corp offices. With manager Brian Epstein serving as narrator, In My Life allows the audience to get a glimpse inside the world of The Beatles from their point of view, as well as hear some of the greatest songs ever written. More than a Beatles tribute concert, historical settings such as the Cavern Club are established on stage with videos and images, which play behind the actors and musicians on a video screen. 
The show has been touring for years and at one point the Orange County Register proclaimed “if you see one tribute show, see this one – smart and loads of fun.” The San Diego Theatre Review called the musical “the best Beatles act in the world,” and the Idaho Statesman said the show was “the ticket for you!”
CALENDAR: “In My Life – A Musical Theatre Tribute to the Beatles” is the award-winning, nationally touring retelling of the Beatles story through the eyes of manager Brian Epstein and featuring one of the best tribute bands in the world, Abbey Road. The multi-media musical comes to the Montgomery Theater in San Jose on November 3 at 2:30 pm and 7:00 pm. Discounted tickets for the matinee performance will be available from August 30 – September 6.
Ticket prices range from $40 - $60, but you will be able to take $10 off all tickets during this time for the matinee performance only. Use promo code "BEATLES" when purchasing tickets between these dates. Tickets may be purchased by phoning (408) 792-4111, visiting www.sanjosetheaters.org or dropping by the Box Office located at 135 W.
