The Beatles are set to make a big splash on Broadway this summer (13), as a new musical about the band's early days hits New York.

Let It Be became a critical smash when it debuted in London late last year (12), and now the show is set for a limited engagement at the St. James Theatre in the Big Apple.

The production, which features 40 Beatles songs including Help! and Hey Jude, will begin previews on 16 July (13) and run until December (13), according to the New York Times.
