Beatles on Broadway: Update

This just in from

Two unheard John Lennon songs are to feature in a new musical about the The Beatles’s life.

Lennon’s widow Yoko Ono has given permission for ‘India, India’ and ‘I Don’t Want To Lose You’ to be included in a new Broadway production.

‘India, India’ was written when the Beatles visited India in 1968, while ‘I Don’t Want To Lose You’ was intended for The Beatles’ Anthology in 1995, but an electronic glitch made it impossible to include, reports the BBC.

The as-yet-untitled musical will debut at New York’s Broadhurst Theatre on July 7, after a world premiere in San Francisco on April 12.

In my mind, I've already got a ticket.
