Lennon: Through A Glass Onion
Lennon – Through A Glass Onion returns to Sydney to celebrate 25 years on the international stage. The music, the mystery and the memory of John Lennon, starring John Waters and Stewart D’Arrietta.
It’s been 25 years since John Waters and Stewart D’Arrieta first performed “Through A Glass Onion” 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.
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.
The ultimate goal for John and Stewart was to take their show to New York one day – and they achieved this in 2015. “It was truly an emotional experience seeing Lennon – Through a Glass Onion in New York at its American premiere,” said lead producer Harley Medcalf.
