Join performers Allen Everman, Jake Jeffries, Benny Lipson, and Jack Lipson as they tradeoff performing classic Beatles hits between two grand pianos, backed by their live on-stage band. “Hey Jude,” “Eleanor Rigby,” “Can’t Buy Me Love” and “Help!” are just a few of the many iconic songs you will enjoy. It’s a spectacular night of theatrical showmanship you won’t want to miss, as these incredible musicians bring the songs of the “Fab Four” to life as you’ve never experienced before!

The cast includes:

Allen Everman is one of Southern California’s most sought after musical directors and accompanists and has conducted over 50 Broadway-caliber shows. In additional to being a member of the music department staff at Citrus College, Allen also serves as Musical Coordinator at St. Dorothy Parish in Glendora. As a professional actor and singer, Allen has performed leading roles in theatrical productions at La Mirada Performing Arts Center, 3D Theatricals, The Chance Theatre in Anaheim and the Welk Resort Theatre in Escondido. He has had the good fortune to work with such ‘greats’ as Sutton Foster, Carol Burnett, Eden Espinosa, Anthony Rapp, and Bobby Rydell.

Jake Jeffries is a singer/songwriter from South Florida. After a brief stint in NYC, he found his way to Los Angeles where he has lived for the last 5 years. Although he’s always written and released songs under his own name, lately his work is on display in children’s animation including the Warner Bros. feature film: “Teen Titans Go! To The Movies” where Jacob’s voice can be heard as the main character Robin’s singing voice in the film. Jacob is also a member of the musical comedy group: The Cooties. The band has been featured on Conan O’Brien Late Night Show & JFL Comedy festivals across Canada. Jacob is constantly writing and releasing new material, so make sure you go check out his latest songs wherever you get your new music fix.

Benny Lipson has shared stages with music giants like Herbie Hancock, Barry Manilow, Idina Menzel, and Ben Folds in iconic venues like the Hollywood Bowl and Disney Hall. A multi-instrumentalist and composer, Benny has curated, orchestrated and arranged for world-class arts organizations LA Phil and Center Theatre Group. In 2016, he formed the award-winning duo Jack and Benny Lipson alongside his twin brother Jack; they’ve since performed their “sensational, clever and astute” originals throughout the country like New York’s Birdland Jazz. This show marks his first drive-in performance. www.jackbennynow.com
