Many people first came to know Peter Asher through the global smash hit “World without Love,” as one-half of the British Invasion duo Peter and Gordon. The two-time GRAMMY winner returns to the stage with a multimedia experience. Asher moved effortlessly from his role as musician with Peter and Gordon to music executive with the Beatles’ Apple Records, then famously to producer and manager, handling the careers of James Taylor, Linda Ronstadt, and a host of others. With countless tell-all books and documentaries on musical artists brimming with half-truths, Asher finally tells his tales firsthand from the eye of the pop-cultural hurricane in this intimate evening.

This show includes film footage and photos from Asher’s considerable personal archive, brought to life with a storyteller’s gift, transporting audiences back to the heart of the 1960s popular culture. Icons such as Mick Jagger, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Marianne Faithful, Yoko Ono, Carole King, James Taylor, and Linda Ronstadt are among the cast of characters in this narrative, along (of course) with the greatly missed Gordon Waller. The evening is filled with the music of Peter and Gordon, including “I Go to Pieces,” “True Love Ways,” and “Lady Godiva.” The songs given to Peter and Gordon by Paul McCartney are also front and center: “Woman,” “I Don’t Want to See You Again,” Nobody I Know,” and “World without Love”—all of which were Top 40 hits. Asher presents these timeless classics along with other old favorites from that golden era.
