Meet 'the Beatles'

by Mary Tutwiler

“Picture yourself in a boat on a river.” No, I’m not talking about a fishing trip. “With tangerine trees and marmalade skies.” And no, not that kind of trip either. Take a trip down memory lane, with the Acadiana Symphony Orchestra and Penny Lane can be in your ears and eyes. Tonight, the ASO presents “The Beatles: Classical Mystery Tour” at 7:30 p.m. at the Heymann Performing Arts Center.

Conductor  Mariusz Smolij and the ASO will back the fab four members of the cast of “Beatlemania,” a Broadway Beatles tribute show. The Liverpool look-alikes will track the history of British invasion through nearly a decade of culture changing hits until the break-up of the band in 1970.

If you’d like to meet the Beatles, a pre-performance meet-and-greet and light-buffet reception with the “Classical Mystery Tour” cast is set from 5:15 p.m. to 6:15 p.m. on the second floor of the Heymann Center. Tickets are $30. For more information, check out Ticketmaster or call (337) 291-5555.
