The Girl Who Loved the Beatles: ’70s Comedy — Hollywood Fringe Fest
Elephant Space Theatre (Hollywood, CA)
Journey back to 1970 New York in the charmingly satirical The Girl Who Loved the Beatles, part of the Hollywood Fringe Festival. Filled with offbeat humor and probing truths about big-city loneliness, this comedy follows Loretta, who arrives in New York from Ohio, on her own after leaving her husband and with no money. Searching for her place in life, Loretta applies for a position with a one-man advertising firm — only to have the owner, Leonard, greet her with the news that he is going out of business. Soon, they find themselves drawn into a funny and revealing conversation about life’s inescapable truths. An off-off-Broadway favorite that was subsequently filmed for television, The Girl Who Loved the Beatles went on to become a hit in Australia. Now this beloved production comes to L.A. as part of an international tour.
