A biographical play about Brian Epstein will be staged next summer in London.

Epstein – The Man Who Made The Beatles will have a six-week run, beginning with previews July 30th at the Leicester Square Theatre in London's West End -- the U.K.'s equivalent of Broadway. Andrew Lancel -- a  veteran of British TV -- portrays the enigmatic music entrepreneur whose stellar career managing the world's biggest rock band made him a household name while he struggled with keeping his gay identity in the closet.

The show was first presented in Liverpool as part of the city's celebration of the Beatles' 50th (British) anniversary in 2012.
