Up Against It


Up Against It

"Up Against It" is an unproduced script by Joe Orton that he wrote it for The Beatles at the height of their fame. Although they turned it down, many critics have stated that this was a bad move, as it could have repaired the fractures in their relationship. Paul McCartney once said in an interview that "We (The Beatles) didn't do it because it was gay. We weren't gay and really that was all there was to it."Fact|date=March 2007

A musical theatre adaptation of "Up Against It" opened Off Broadway on 14 November 1989 with music by Todd Rundgren. A recording of Rundgren's song demos for the show was released in Japan in 1997. Several songs from the show, however, appeared on Rundgren's albums "Nearly Human" and "2nd Wind."
