“If you’re not having fun, it’s your own fault.”–Billy McGuigan
The holidays will soon be upon us which means it’s nearly time for one of Omaha’s great traditions as Yesterday and Today: An Interactive Beatles Experience is poised to begin its twelfth year at the Omaha Community Playhouse.
Spearheaded by the McGuigans (Billy, Ryan, and Matthew) and their all-star band, Yesterday and Today is a joyful, sometimes raucous, romp down memory lane as these multi-talented musicians pay tribute to the Beatles with a series of high energy concerts guaranteed to have you clapping, snapping, sighing, screaming, and singing along before the night is through.
What is this show?
Anything you want it to be.
This is like no concert you’ve ever attended because the set list will be chosen by you from start to finish. No two shows will ever be the same.
Feel like some classic Beatlemania? They can do that. Do you want to hear “Yesterday”? They can do that, too. Care to challenge them with an obscure number like “Only a Northern Song”? Consider that challenge accepted. They know them all.
Yesterday and Today runs at the Omaha Community Playhouse from Nov 22-Dec 31. Showtimes are 7:30pm Fri-Sat and 2pm on Sundays. Tickets cost $40 and can be obtained at http://www.omahaplayhouse.com or visiting the Box Office located at 6915 Cass Street in Omaha, NE or calling 402-553-0800. On December 31, 2019, join the band as they ring in the New Year with performances at 7pm and 10pm. Cake and punch are served before each of these two performances with a champagne toast at midnight. Tickets for the 7pm show are $60 and $80 for the 10pm show.
See it once. See it twice. Heck, see the whole run. You’re in for a “Magical Mystery Tour” because “It’s All Too Much” when the McGuigans and their band hit the stage and blow the roof off.
