Slipping into the theater at the last minute, McCartney, 69, and Shevell, 51, kept a low profile. "Paul led the way to their seats and they were holding hands," an eyewitness tells Us Weekly. "Both seemed very happy and accepted a few congratulations from acquaintances in the theater."

Thursday's outing is one of the first for the new Mr. and Mrs. Paul McCartney, who tied the knot in a small ceremony at the registry office in Marylebone. The intimate affair was attended by 30 of the couple's close friends and family, including Ringo Starr and his wife Barbara Bach, George Harrison's widow Olivia, Shevell's son Arlen, and her cousin, Barbara Walters.
