Opening next month at the Leicester Square Theatre is an acclaimed play about Beatles manager Brian Epstein.

Epstein: The Man Who Made The Beatles tells the untold story 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.

The play imagines this brilliant but troubled man’s drug-fuelled final days whilst looking back upon his illustrious adult life and meteoric career from his drama school days to managing the world’s biggest pop group and shaping music and style across the world.

This fascinating two-hander, which runs at the Leicester Square theatre from 30 July to 6 September 2014, is written by Andrew Sherlock and directed by Jen Heyes.

The show stars stage and TV star Andrew Lancel (Coronation Street, The Bill) as Brian Epstein and hot newcomer Will Finlason as ‘This Boy’.
