Looking Through a Glass Onion – John Waters

John Waters returns in his critically acclaimed production Looking Through A Glass Onion - a homage to the music, mystery and memory of John Lennon. Wednesday 8th December 2010 marks the 30th anniversary since he was tragically gunned down outside his New York City apartment. John Lennon would have been 70 years of age in October 2010.


Glass Onion was created by Waters and D'Arrietta back in January 1992 with a 5 week run in a small cabaret room at the Tilbury Hotel in Sydney's Woolloomooloo as a two man show and was an instant success. Since then, included more musicians it has toured London's West End and a further 2 Sold Out Australian tours.

The show is not a cut-and-paste biography of Lennon or an emulation of the original recordings. 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. 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, Working Class Hero, Imagine and more, this is a show for all ages. The music is delivered superbly by The Glass Onion Band that is lead by Stewart D'Arrietta.
