LENNON THROUGH A GLASS ONION
THE NEW YORK PRODUCTION
Lennon’s spirit shines through…… New York Post
It’s been more than 25 years since John Waters and Stewart D’Arrietta first performed this show on the small stage at Sydney’s Tilbury Hotel. Little did they know that over an inspiring 25-year journey they would perform the show in New York and London, leaving their mark on audiences around the world.
Lennon – Through a Glass Onion will return to Melbourne for a limited season in March 2018 to celebrate this major milestone of over 25 years on the road. Created and performed by renowned Australian actor/musician John Waters and esteemed singer/pianist Stewart D’Arrietta, Lennon – Through a Glass Onion is part concert and part biography and reveals the essence of the life and astonishing talent of one of the most admired icons of the past century. It’s a compelling story and features 31 iconic hits of Lennon and his collaborations with McCartney including Imagine, Strawberry Fields Forever, Revolution, Woman, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, Working Class Hero, and Jealous Guy.
For the audience this is either an emotional trip down memory lane or a wonderful introduction to the life and times of one of the most fascinating icons of our time.
