All You Need Is Love

All You Need Is Love 2001 programme pics

All You Need... was a short-run show, a compilation of Beatles songs staged. There was no plot. I mean, NO plot. there was plenty of what would have been sub-plot if there was a plot for it to be under- this character got with that character's girl, etc, there were relationships between the characters, but no actual discernable plot. However, what All You Need... did have, was a mind-blowingly FANTASTIC cast!

Every one as strong as the others. The vocals were amazing, and the dance, choreographed by Kate Prince and Nigel Charnock, was the best I've seen in the West End. Of course the music, all Beatles songs, was good, and also in some unusual and very effective arrangements!
The show was never intended to be a long-running hit, it opened in Bromley, toured around for a few months before lasting the summer of 2001 in the Queen's Theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue. It closed on September 1st, 2001.
