Fab 6 – Beatles Review. Fab 6 is a joyfully sprawling musical tribute to the Beatles in their studio years (Sergeant Pepper, Magical Mystery Tour, Abby Road) with a smattering of hit singles). But perhaps even more, it is a nod to George Martin (producer) and the lush arrangements that became so much a part of the Beatles studio sound. $25. Wilcox Theater. Reif Center. 720 Conifer Dr.
