Let It Be, the new Broadway tribute to the music of The Beatles, will end its run at the St. James Theatre on Sunday, September 1. The production will have played nine previews and 46 performances.

Originally scheduled to run through December 29, the closing is attributed to challenging ticket sales during the summer season. The cast, physical production, and other resources will instead be utilized to fulfill worldwide demand for the production, which includes an extensive UK tour, international visits, and a North American tour in 2014.

Let It Be tells the history of The Fab Four through a mixture of live music and video. The show includes state-of-the-art projections and 3-D sound, in order to put the audience at the center of the Beatles' story. The song list includes hits like "Twist and Shout," "She Loves You," "Drive My Car," "Yesterday," "Hey Jude," "Come Together," and "Let It Be." Graham Alexander, John Brosnan, Ryan Coath, James Fox, Reuven Gershon, Chris McBurney, Luke Roberts, Ryan Alex Farmery, John Korba, and Daniel A. Weiss make up the rotating casts.
