STARRING IN THE USA & AUSTRALIA: JOHN WATERS
WITH STEWART D'ARRIETTA
WITH THE MUSIC AND LYRICS OF John Lennon and Paul McCartney
returns to Melbourne for a limited season in March to celebrate 25 years on the road. 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, revealing the essence of the life and astonishing talent of one of the most admired icons of the past century.
A compelling story featuring 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 response the show has received, especially from the younger audiences that come along, some of whom were not even born when Lennon and The Beatles were recording and releasing their music. It’s a testament to the legacy of the man and his music that still excites and intrigues people to this day,” says Waters.
“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 D’Arrietta. 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.
