Friday night was Rutlemania's closing night in Los Angeles. The show is currently headed to New York. Rutlemania is a multimedia extravaganza produced by Eric Idle with all of the Rutles songs performed by the cover band "The Pre-Fab Four".

Interspersed between (some rare) clips from All You Need is Cash, and Can't Buy me Lunch, the songs from the film are performed live, like a musical. The theater audience was also entertained by dancing girls, flashy lights, tea, bubbles and the spectre of Leggy Mountbatten.
