NEW YORK —

The Beatles are coming back to Broadway.

Two years after a Fab Four cover band arrived on the Great White Way, the London hit "Let It Be" plans to arrive this summer with new guys playing John, Paul, George and Ringo.

Producers said Wednesday "Let It Be" will feature 40 songs including "Twist and Shout," "She Loves You" "Yesterday," "Hey Jude," "Come Together" and "Let It Be."

In 2011, "Rain: A Tribute to the Beatles on Broadway" opened at the Neil Simon Theatre, recouped its $2 million investment in seven weeks, extended and moved into the smaller Brooks Atkinson.

"Let It Be" will start previews July 16 at the St. James Theatre, with an opening night slated for July 24. The London version will continue to run.
