Jill Eathorne Bahr’s eclectic and inspired newest masterpiece takes you on a rollicking journey through the songbook of the legendary fab four and the insanity of Beatle rock culture. (1 hour)
WHAT IS IT? The Magical Mystery Tour is choreographer Jill Eathorne Bahr’s love letter to the Beatles, writ in dance. It is a celebration of not only the Fab Four themselves, but of the vast cultural phenomenon known as Beatlemania.
WHY SEE IT? Charleston Ballet Theatre quite simply represents some of the finest artistic talent in the South Carolina Lowcountry — and that’s saying something. Besides, the ballet company is an especially fine sight to see in circa 1960s fashions, moving in time to songs about peace, love, and Lucy in the sky.
WHO SHOULD GO? Anyone who prefers to make love, not war.
