THE ULTIMATE BEATLES REVUE
Described as "the best of the Beatles re-creations", "Twist and Shout" features a sensational look-alike, sound-alike cast. It is headlined by Tony Kishman as Paul, with Jim Owen as John, Roger Cassell as George, and Carroll "Beaver" Parker as Ringo. "Twist and Shout" stars former members of the Broadway hit show "Beatlemania". (Sometimes, when requested, they add dancing girls to their production. In the course of the show, these not only dance to the Beatles' hits, but evolve from the teenyboppers of the early '60's to the flower children of the psychedelic era.) In addition, the show includes multimedia clips that recall the events of the turbulent '60's and highlight America's first experience of the "Fab Four", and the hysteria that became "Beatlemania".

The tribute show features more than thirty Beatles songs, and every stage of their career is included. It begins with a recreation of their 1964 debut on the "Ed Sullivan Show", in matching black Edwardian suits and boots, performing early hits like "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" and "She Loves You". Changing into the proper multicolored satin uniforms, the band then performs songs from the "Sergeant Pepper" era such as "A Day In The Life" and "Penny Lane". Finally, they cover the hippie days of "Abbey Road" and "Let It Be". All the vocals are performed live, and each performer plays his proper instrument (well). The instruments, like the costumes, are authentic Beatle originals.
 
 

"Twist and Shout" was voted the northern Nevada's "Cabaret Show of the Year" for two years running, and broke all attendance records at Harvey's Lake Tahoe (NV). It played to sell-out engagements at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City (NJ), the Flamingo Hilton in Las Vegas, and the New York regional theaters Gateway Playhouse and Candlewood Playhouse.
