Through Dec. 31 Yesterday and Today Omaha Community Playhouse, 6915 Cass St. Thurs. 7:30 p.m., $38; Fri. 7 p.m., $50 and 10 p.m., $75 553.0800, Tribute shows are de rigueur for certain performers so ingrained in the collective consciousness that fans crave vicarious incarnations of them. Any Beatles tribute is hot stuff right now given the confluence of Fab Four phantasmagoria in 2010. First, this is the 30th anniversary year of John Lennon’s death. Then there was the debut of Beatles music on iTunes in late 2010. And Paul McCartney earned a kind of American knighthood with his Dec. 5 recognition at the Kennedy Center Honors. Taken together, it’s a “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” good vibe that Billy McGuigan and Co. are channeling the Beatles with an interactive, live music show. McGuigan and his band will be rocking out a selection of Beatles standards, some by audience request. NYE shows will include special celebratory perks.
