Paul McDonough

John Lennon

Paul McDonough was born and raised in Liverpool; and after graduating from Art School began a career in music touring Great Britain with orignal music alongside covers from established artists. This led to having songs published and thhe beginning of a lifelong recording career. 

Joining The Cavern Beatles in the late 90s, started a long, successful and acclaimed history playing the part of John Lennon; becoming established and regarded as one of the best to occupy the role. 

A move to The Backebeat Beatles brough theatre tours, headlining on cruise ships; also adding arenas and festivals (including Glastonbury) throughout the world to his experience.

In 2011 a three year term began with Beatlemania/Magic of the beatles continuing the above venues range; then a stint in The Cavern Club Beatles at the original Cavern Club in Liverpool.

Turning to resident cruise status in 2015 up to the current year: setting up, managing, recuriting and playing in The Beatles shows onboard cruise ships. These ships had bult their very own replica Cavern Club like the original in Liverpool, where The Beatles began their career. This has been very successful; due to overwhelming demand, two nights in the Main Theatre were added to the weekly schedule.

The past year, throughout one of the most difficult times due to the Covid Pandemic effectively closing down the entertainment industry; Paul began working on an autobiography, tracing his journey through his "Beatle" life. He hopes to complete the book this year.

He is now really excited to be given the lead Role in "Imagine" a theatre show of John Lennon's songs and journey from The Beatles to his solo years. This is a very challenging aand demanding task; but one he was, perhaps, born to play
