Brian Epstein's life celebrated

Now we can all name each of the Fab Four - but what about the man the band called the fifth Beatle? Without manager Brian Epstein the four lads from Liverpool may not be the gobal icons we know today.

Epstein: The Man Who Made The Beatles

'Epstein: The Man Who Made The Beatles' is the highly anticipated production about one of the world’s most successful music entrepreneurs, Brian Epstein.

Brian discovered the Fab Four at the legendary Cavern club in Liverpool and took them on to global superstardom.

Andrew Lancel (Coronation Street, The Bill, Queen as Folk) will take the lead role of Brian Epstein.

The play forms part of Liverpool’s 50th Anniversary of The Beatles, at the Epstein Theatre named after Brian.

The play opens tonight and runs until the 1st of December.
