Renowned Australian singer/actor John Waters returns to Mooroopna this month with his long-running and popular show Lennon: Through a Glass Onion after a 16-week stint in New York.
Created and performed by Waters and talented singer/pianist Stewart D’Arrietta, the show celebrates the genius, music and phenomenon of John Lennon through his words and music.
It features 31 iconic Lennon songs including solo works such as Imagine, Woman, Working Class Hero and Jealous Guy, as well as his Beatles collaborations with Paul McCartney such as Strawberry Fields Forever, Revolution and Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.
The show, which has toured Australia several times and played at London’s West End, was re-produced and rebranded for its off-Broadway debut in October last year.
Waters said he and D’Arrietta were embraced by New Yorkers.
‘‘It truly felt as though Glass Onion had, in fact, given the city what it needed, to reconcile their own sense of loss of a much loved son, as John Lennon came to be.
‘‘Night after night, our audiences stood to acknowledge us, and it doesn’t get much better than that.
‘‘It never ceases to amaze us how many people still request to see the show, even after our last lengthy tour. We’re constantly getting emails and messages asking when is the show coming back, so it’s great that the demand and interest is always there.’’
Lennon: Through a Glass Onion plays at WestSide Performing Arts Centre, Echuca Rd, Mooroopna on Saturday, June 24, from 8pm.
