The Broadway production looks back at the Beatles legend's life...

Two unheard John Lennon songs are to feature in a new musical about the THE BEATLES’s life.

John Lennon’s widow Yoko Ono has given permission for ‘India, India’ and ‘I Don’t Want To Lose You’ to be included in a new Broadway production.

‘India, India’ was written when the Beatles visited India in 1968, while ‘I Don’t Want To Lose You’ was intended for The Beatles’ Anthology in 1995, but an electronic glitch made it impossible to include, reports the BBC.

The as-yet-untitled musical will debut at New York’s Broadhurst Theatre on July 7, after a world premiere in San Francisco on April 12.

Writer/director Don Scardino said: “We will tell the story of [/a]’s life using [a]John Lennon’s own words and songs. Our ensemble of ten extraordinary and diverse performers and a ten-piece onstage band will guide the audience through John Lennon’s life and the eras he shaped.”
