The Beatles LOVE - Characters

  • Doctor Robert

    A doctor of mysterious character, and not necessarily of medicine. A gracious host, he gladly supplies "tea" to unsuspecting drinkers and encourages them to take leaps of faith into new and sometimes intoxicating ventures.
  • Eleanor Rigby

    Eleanor Rigby is a resilient English woman challenged by loneliness, age, war and burdened by the weight of her past, which she tugs everywhere. She is both a survivor and a lost soul.
  • Father McKenzie

    An old preacher indignant about change, Father McKenzie is frustrated that his world is crumbling and his sermons are not heard, deafened in large part by the new age of Rock' n’ Roll.

  • The Fool

    Silly yet profound, the Fool is the duality that lives in all of us. He is fun, loveable and enigmatic, and marches to his own off-beat. He is restless, yet soulful. Mischievious, yet always good-hearted. He exudes happiness even in the darkest hours, lightening everyone’s spirits and showing them beauty in an absurd world.

  • Groupies

    The age of Rock 'n’ Roll infected no youths more than the Groupies – girls unleashed into a delirious and frantic obsession to chase boys, demonstrate lust and dance their bobby socks off.
  • Her Majesty

    English heritage and royalty are imbued in Her Majesty. She symbolizes the pride of a nation and the affection the citizens have for their Motherland.
  • Kids of Liverpool

    They are the children growing up in the surreal paradise of war-torn England in the 1940s, much the same way that The Beatles did themselves. The innocence of their youth is shrouded in the rubble of conflict and devastation. The grim reality of their youth serves as a catalyst for them to challenge convention and inspires their unorthodox musical tastes.
  • Krishna

    Krishna opens the minds of others to new sounds, new cultures and new tastes. He is the link between East and West as he rejoices in the body beautiful and the spirit serene.
  • Lady Madonna

    Lady Madonna embodies the strength and beauty of motherhood. She is a brave and generous woman. In a celebration of pregnancy and family, Lady Madonna dances with her lover, Sugar Plum Fairy, surrounded by children at her feet.
  • Mr. Piggy

    Mr. Piggy is an aristocratic traditionalists dead set against the new culture being brought on by Rock’n’Roll. He eventually partakes in the tea ritual, getting more and more sucked into the youthful revolution of love and freedom.
  • Nowhere Men

    The four Nowhere Men, fans of The Beatles, are the zeitgeist of LOVE, evoking the enduring camaraderie, impassioned spirit and wide-eyed aspiration of both the band and their generation.
  • Sailors

    Evoking the ports of Liverpool, the Sailors represent both the strength of a nation and the gateway through which The Beatles were exposed to the musical influences that would ultimately shape their lives.
  • Sgt. Pepper

    Sgt. Pepper is the band leader of the old guard who must overcome the loss of his instruments. A symbol of the pre-war way of life, he reinvents himself with a new band of the times. Initially traditional and meticulous, Sgt. Pepper learns to adapt his instruments, his music and himself to the new times.
  • Sugar Plum Fairy

    The ever-charming bluesman, Sugar Plum Fairy loves music as much as he loves to dance. In The Beatles lore, he is the rhythm pusher who would deal bootleg Blues and Rock ’n’ Roll records to the music-hungry kids of Liverpool. Sugar Plum Fairy personifies the link between old-world Blues and new-wave Pop, bridging the oceans between America and the UK.

  • The Walrus

    A creature of glamour and unbridled youth, the Walrus is the spark of change from the old guard and the new era of music and dance. He spreads his contagious energy and breathes new life into the stodgy world of the Old School English Establishment.
