A homage to the music, mystery and memory of John Lennon.


See John Waters on stage, with shadows from the lighting arrangement fluttering over his face as he explores the essence of the man through song and spoken word. Waters, becomes synonymous with Lennon. He shies away from imitating the artist, but so emotive is his performance, it lulls the audience into believing anything is possible. It’s part concert and part biography, though it doesn’t seek to tell the full story of Lennon’s life.


“The song Glass Onion was John Lennon’s postscript to The Beatles. It had such a strong image of crystal ball-gazing and peeling away the layers that it inspired the format for this show – a kaleidoscope collage of song, word, emotion and image”, agrees Stewart D’Arrietta with John Waters.


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.


With 31 songs performed including to name a few, A Day in the Life, Strawberry Fields Forever, Revolution, Lucy In the Sky with Diamonds, Woman, Jealous Guy, Imagine and more, this is a show for all ages.
