All You Need is Myth authors Steve Wagner and Jade Sylvan will appear live at the Somerville Theatre in Somerville, MA on February 9, 2014, the evening of the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ groundbreaking appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show. The special live presentation will explore the Beatles’ deep mythic impact and wide-ranging cultural significance.
All You Need is Myth offers a breakthrough perspective on the Beatles’ historic legacy, explaining how the onset of mass-media and and the spiritual thirst of the unprecedented 60s youth culture combined to produce a modern global rock mythology that continues to deepen and solidify with time.
The program on February 9 will be an immersive multimedia experience and dialogue that will include musical performances by a one-night-only supergroup of Boston musicians, lead by Brian King of What Time is it, Mr. Fox?, as well as dance by three of the most innovative artists in the alterna-burlesque world, Mary Widow, Jane Doe, and Honey Pie.
