‘Epstein: The Man Who Made The Beatles’ is a window into the private world 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. Epstein died in 1967 of an accidental overdose at the age of 32. The production is being showcased at the Montecasino Theatre & Studio until September 27.
This two-hander 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 – a must-see opportunity to discover a previously unexplored story and celebrate a true icon of 1960s popular culture – a man who shaped music and style across the world.
