BEATLES MUSICAL "IN MY LIFE" PLUS EXCLUSIVE MEET & GREET

The OC Good Life has received a special invitation to see the award-winning musical biography of the Beatles, "In My Life".  Good Life members and their guests will receive "friends of the show prices" - $20 Front Orchestra SOLD OUT (first 16 rows) and $12.50 Rear Orchestra STILL AVAILABLE, plus the show's producers will be giving our group an exclusive VIP Meet & Greet Event prior to the show.  I have seen this show twice and still looking forward to seeing it again.  The producer is a friend and he said that he will secure seats together for the group for "Will Call" pickup and payment on the night of the show. The show begins at 8:00 pm.

UPDATE: As of 5 pm on 2/12, we have sold out of our allocation of Front Orchestra seats, but we do still have the Rear Orchestra ($12.50) seats available.

UPDATE 2/21: Due to the size of the group, we all can't fit backstage at the theatre so our exclusive Meet & Greet (with the cast) has been changed to 7:00 pm at the Whale and Ale British Pub which is just 2 short blocks away at 327 W 7th Street in San Pedro. The restaurant will offer some light Hors d'oeuvres for our members plus a no-host bar and you may park in their gated lot at no charge for the show. You may also make reservations at the restaurant if you choose to have dinner there. The show still begins at 8:00 pm and you will be able to get your tickets at the pub if you pay by cash or check. Those who can't make the Meet & Greet may pick their tickets up directly at the Will Call prior to the show. I will email everyone full details Thursday evening 2/21.

This family friendly show performs at the historical Warner Grand Theatre on Saturday, February 23 at 8 pm in San Pedro.  If you have never been to this theatre, experiencing an evening inside this lavish 1930's art-deco theatre is worth the ticket price alone.  Jack Warner called it "The Castle of Your Dreams" and it was designed by B. Marcus Priteca who later designed Hollywood's famous Pantages Theater.

In My Life - A Musical Theatre Tribute to the Beatles is the award-winning musical biography of the Beatles through the eyes of manager Brian Epstein and features the live music of renowned tribute band, Abbey Road. The show is widely considered by industry insiders to be the most unique Beatles show in decades.

“The show delivers!” said the L.A. Times. “If you see one tribute show, see this one – smart and loads of fun,” said the O.C. Register. “This is the ticket for you,” said the Idaho Statesman. “The most original of all the shows on the Beatles,” San Diego Theatre Review.

More than just a Beatles tribute concert, In My Life gives the audience a chance to “be there” at pivotal moments in the extraordinary career of the Beatles - from Liverpool’s legendary Cavern Club, to the Ed Sullivan Show, Shea Stadium’s 50,000 + screaming fans and their final live performance on the rooftop of their Apple Corp offices. With manager Brian Epstein serving as Narrator, In My Life allows the audience to get a glimpse inside the world of the Beatles from their point of view, as well as hear some of the greatest songs ever written.

In My Life takes the audience back to February 1964, when Americans saw the Beatles for the first time on the Ed Sullivan Show, playing I Want to Hold Your Hand. Progressing through their various musical stages, the audience re-experiences the psychedelic era of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, the creation of the haunting Yesterday and the raucous rock and roll of Revolution.

"There have been so many different Beatle band concert shows over the years, but in “In My Life,” we get a chance to see the Beatles, up close and personal, and hopefully gain a deeper insight into who they really were," said Tom Maher, one of the show's producers.

    Thank you Mark --- I wouldn't have't known about this had it not been for you. I brought one of my dearest friends with me, and we LOVED the music. The "Beatles" were great. My friend's sister-in-law, unbeknownst to me, LOVES the Beatles and begged to go with us. You had already closed off the tickets --- but she drove all the way from San Diego County to buy a ticket at the counter and was hoping to sit near us, which she did. We all had a fantastic time -- thank you very much. Loved the theater too .... fantastic.

    Thank you, Mark!! This was my first OC meet up and what a way to start. My boyfriend LIVES for The Beatles so this was a make or break evening. I had no idea what to expect, so this was a THRILL for both of us. At RSVP time, I didn't jump in fast enough to request the front orchestra from you, but I made my Christmas wish early for an upgrade...yea, Santa Mark! Front Orchestra, nine rows back, dead center and no big hair in front of us to contend with! :D Utter perfection. My sad note for the evening was that they didn't play my song (Michelle). My high note was that Paul serenaded me personally with my song while he signed my program. (I think it even made my boyfriend a little jealous. LOL) The night goes down as an incredible memory. Thank you for making it possible. ;)

      Hi Karrie. This was my first meetup and we missed the M&G at the restaurant so we didn't have time to introduce ourselves to any new faces but at the next event, I'll be sure to look for you and Valerie both. I've got a couple of comedy evenings planned so I might be there on March 5. I'm glad I found this group. I know some great things will come from it! ;)

    I'm too confused; I give up. I requested an orchestra seat on January 21 and I reconfirmed and then I saw Sherry saying I could have one of her tix. I tried eamiling both Mark & Sherree but maybe the email is too slow or I'm too slow.

    February 23, 2013

    • Mark

      You had a RSVP for the show and were sent a reminder confirmation via email (with my cell number on it) on Thursday night as did everyone else who had an RSVP plus I had responded to all timely emails and messages on the event page until I left for the theatre at 4 pm today. You missed a great show!!!

    Hi Mark
    I would like to pick up my tickets from you at the pub if possible (2) orchestra... let me know, thanks. I'm new at this so hopefully you get the message.
    Looking forward to it.

    February 22, 2013

    • Mark

      For clarification: We DO NOT have FRONT ROW ORCHESTRA SEATS. The event listing states that we have seats in the Front Orchestra section which is the first 16 rows. Typically, for musicals, the best seats are in Rows 10 - 15.

      February 23, 2013

    • Mark

      For those who will be at our Meet & Greet and paying with cash or check, I wil be working with the show's producer so that you will not have to go to the Will Call window at the theatre since we could have 150 people all going at the same time... The choice is all yours!

    Hi Mark --- are cameras welcome? It's going to be soooo fun!

    February 22, 2013

      cameras are perfect for the meet & greet and I think that they should be fine for the show without the flash...

      1 · February 22, 2013

      I have confirmed that cameras and video are ok but NO FLASH during the musical...

      Hi Mark. I was wondering a couple of things: if Kristine's spots had been taken yet and if not, were they the front orchestra spots?

      February 22, 2013

    • Mark

      Hi Michelle, I am unsure at this point... Please let me know if you are wanting front orchestra seats and I will notify you if they come available after we do our count. Thanks!

The restaurant will have some light Hors d'oeuvres for our members plus a no-host bar and you may park in their lot which is free and walk to the show.

    GOOD DAY SUNSHINE - HERE COMES THE SUN! YESTERDAY, the producers of the show didn't LET IT BE and they did GET BACK with me by saying WE CAN WORK IT OUT and they offered us 50 more tickets to IN MY LIFE. So, DON'T LET ME DOWN, WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM MY FRIENDS, more of us can COME TOGETHER via THE LONG AND WINDING ROAD, which isn't PENNY LANE, to the Warner Grand Theatre in San Pedro. Instead of being a NOWHERE MAN, I have my TICKET TO RIDE for this show where many of us will TWIST AND SHOUT to the music... HELLO, GOODBYE!
