More than 50 years since the height of Beatlemania and after 10 years at The Mirage, The Beatles LOVE may not have needed a refresh, but Cirque du Soleil did it anyway. “Twist and Shout” has been added. Musical director Giles Martin, son of the late Sir George Martin, has remixed the Grammy-winning soundtrack. NappyTabs, Emmy-winning choreographers of So You Think You Can Dance, updated some sequences. And fresh hand-drawn imagery, created by Dandypunk, is played through 20 new projectors and now employs the stage floor as a projection surface. Your eyes, ears, mind and spirit have compelling reasons to revisit a deftly crafted, soaring production. The Mirage, 7 and 9:30 p.m. Thu-Mon, from $79. TheMirage.com.
