Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Mark Morris Dance Group’s Pepperland finally arrives here. Known for his deep musicality, his terrific dancers and his always eye-catching moves, expect this inventive choreographer to bring humor and a 21st-century take on the album’s iconic songs, including “With a Little Help from My Friends,” “Within You Without You,” “Penny Lane,” “A Day in the Life,” “When I’m Sixty-Four,” the title track and several new compositions inspired by the original.
