2017 marks the 25th Anniversary of Lennon: Through a Glass Onion. In 1992, twelve years after Lennon’s death, Australian actor/musician John Waters and singer/pianist Stewart D’Arrietta first conceived and performed Lennon: Through a Glass Onion on a small stage at the Tilbury Hotel in Sydney.
The show was an instant success. In the years that followed, Waters and D’Arrietta toured the show and played sold out engagements at venues including The Sydney Opera House. The show performed a three-month engagement in London’s West End.
Re-produced and rebranded for its Off-Broadway debut at the Union Square Theatre, Lennon: Through a Glass Onion is back in Australia following its sensational 16 week season in New York.
Created and performed by Waters and D’Arrietta, Lennon: Through a Glass Onion, part concert and part biography, reveals the essence of the life and astonishing talent of one of the most admired icons of the past century with a story and 31 songs including Imagine, Strawberry Fields Forever, Revolution, Lucy In the Sky with Diamonds, All You Need is Love, Come Together, Help, Working Class Hero, Mother, 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.
Friday 27th & Saturday 28th January, 8 pm at the Byron Theatre. Tickets: $55 Bookings: www.byroncentre.com.au/whats-on
