First seen at Northern Stage in our 2014 and 2017 New Works Now festivals and later presented as a world premiere production in 2018, Only Yesterday continues its journey with a New York premiere at 59E59 Theaters this fall as Northern Stage’s third Off-Broadway transfer.
Paul McCartney and John Lennon together again for one night only. This intimate play by Hollywood writer Bob Stevens (The Wonder Years, Murphy Brown, Malcolm in the Middle) brings to life a little-known night when John and Paul were becoming the most famous men on earth.
After months of performing for arenas of fans, John and Paul find themselves stranded in a cheap motel room in Key West. They do what many young men do when they’re bored—get drunk and have some laughs. But as their talk turns serious, they bond over the revelation of childhood events and find inspiration for the music that changed our lives.
