JOHN LENNON: Tribute Musical Coming to New York This Fall
Lennon: Through A Glass Onion, which originated more than 20 years ago in Australia, will debut off-Broadway on October 15th.
A John Lennon tribute show is set to arrive in New York this fall — but it promises to be different. Deadline.com reports that the Australian production Lennon: Through A Glass Onion opens off-Broadway at the Union Square Theater on October 15th.
Described as “part concert, part biography,” the show features more than 30 Lennon/McCartney and Lennon solo songs such as “A Day In The Life,” “Help,” “Imagine,” “Revolution,” “Lucy In the Sky with Diamonds,” “All You Need is Love” and “Come Together.”
Actor/musician John R. Waters, who created and has performed the show with singer/pianist Stewart D’Arrietta, wants to draw a line between this effort and faux-Beatles concert productions such as Let It Be, which flopped in New York just a year ago. He says, “Rather than impersonate, I want to evoke Lennon’s honesty, bitter-sweet humor, self criticism and disdain for pomposity.”
