Naomi Price is back as Lady Beatle
FOLLOWING her sell-out Adele show Rumour Has It last year, Naomi Price and her band return to NORPA with her new show Lady Beatle, an exhilarating musical show about the real women who inspired The Beatles biggest chart toppers.
2017 Green Room Award winner Naomi Price takes the audience through The Beatles' immortal catalogue with sparkling original arrangements, covering all the hits including Eleanor Rigby, Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds, Here Comes the Sun, Yellow Submarine and more.
With an electrifying live band, psychedelic lighting and dazzling special effects, Lady Beatle delivers an exceptional night out for Beatles fans young and old.
"Lady Beatle is the third and final pop culture cabaret in our planned trilogy, following Rumour Has It and Wrecking Ball," Price said. "This is certainly our most ambitious work to date."
Price said Lady Beatle wasn't a 'live Beatles biopic'.
"At no point will I take on the persona of any of the famous four," Price said.
"Instead, we've created an entirely original character, who's perhaps The Beatles' biggest fan, or maybe something different completely," she said.
Price says the production provides audiences with the opportunity to rediscover The Beatles' incomparable catalogue as new, channeled through a sole female voice.
For UK-born Price, the work also holds deep personal significance, with connections to her own family in England.
"My first encounter with the music of The Beatles was through my dad, Paul, who was born in Liverpool," Price said.
"He had a Beatles songbook and would play the songs on his guitar, and so I taught myself my favourite songs. As a child, I loved Penny Lane and Love Me Do."
