The cast and producers of Epstein: The Man Who Made The Beatles - the long-awaited play about the legendary music manager Brian Epstein - visited London's Leicester Square Theatre last week to officially launch the show's initial 6-week run at the venue this Summer.
2014 also sees Brian Epstein posthumously inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of fame after a campaign from fans and also the unveiling of a commemorative blue plaque at the London offices of Epstein's company NEMS. Epstein: The Man Who Made The Beatles is the untold story and window into the private world of the music entrepreneur whose stellar career as Beatles Manager made him a household name yet whose controversial personal life remained very much in the closet. Brian died in 1967 of an accidental overdose at the age of 32. Acclaimed stage and TV star Andrew Lancel (Coronation Street, The Bill) and actor Will Finlason will return to the roles of Brian Epstein and the fictional character 'This Boy' respectively, for which they each received rave reviews during the initial run of Epstein: The Man Who Made The Beatles in Liverpool, where the show premiered in November 2012 as part of the city's official Beatles 50th Anniversary celebrations at the Epstein Theatre.
