John Lennon left behind him a legacy of unforgettable music, which has continued to inspire us decades after his tragic death. Music never truly dies; the melody is just picked up by other voices and carried forward. You can experience an example of this, as well as enjoy the timeless melodies of John Lennon, at “Lennon: Through a Glass Onion”, playing at the Union Square Theater (100 East 17th Street) until February 22.
An Evening of Lennon
Renowned actor and talented singer John Waters, as well as his accompanist Stewart D’Arrietta, bring 31 of Lennon’s best-loved songs to Manhattan with this newly opened show. Hear favorites such as “Strawberry Fields Forever”, “Imagine”, and “Lucy In the Sky with Diamonds”played live. There’s more than the music, however. You’ll also be treated to spoken word pieces that detail the life and times of the iconic John Lennon.
It’s a performance that earned wild popularity and rave reviews in Australia, where both performers originated, despite a very tiny 1192 premier. It was booked for a single week in the Tilbury Hotel, but the tremendous demand earned it five more weeks.
Remembering a Legend
John Waters is famous Down Under for his work on stage. He’s been in musicals such as The Sound of Music, My Fair Lady, and Jesus Christ Superstar. Stewart D’Arrietta has performed as Tom Waits in Tom Waits for No Man and Belly of a Drunken Piano. This show promises a worthy homage to one of the greatest singers of all time.
