When it was recently announced that this Broadway season would welcome the Beatles tribute musical revue Let It Be, some may have had a case of deja vu. After all, there was another Beatles inspired revue on Broadway just a couple of years ago with Rain: A Tribute to the Beatles.
A new lawsuit reveals that the producers of Rain feel they have a legal case against the producers of Let It Be. They are suing for copyright infringement, requesting a 50-50 split of Let It Be‘s revenue and asking that the Rain Corporation be listed as joint author. The makers of Rain claim that Let It Be has used much of its material, including staging, musical arrangements, song selection, costume styles, and more.
Let It Be, which was first produced in London, recently began preview performances at Broadway’s St. James Theatre.
