We gave it an A-

Fab-aholics may want to see this Cirque du Soleil-meets-the Beatles revue twice…once with eyes shut, just to bask in the revelatory remixes and audio collages. (A CD is due, but good luck matching the Mirage’s 6,000-plus speakers with home surround.) LOVE does stoop to period silliness — as in ”Revolution,” where bobbies chase hippies, but at least they’re inhumanly airborne on trampolines. And for every bit of Hair-like freestyle choreography, there’s some transcendent theater: ”Something” as sexy aerial ballet, or a chilling enactment of Lennon’s mother’s death in ”A Day in the Life.”
