In 1992, John Waters and Stewart D’Arrietta took to the small stage at the Tilbury Hotel, in Woolloomooloo, Sydney, with their debut production of Lennon: Looking Through a Glass Onion.What was a one-week booking sold out and extended into a six-week, season, and 25 years later it sis still on stage, back in Australia following a 16-week season in New York.The theatrical event was re-produced and rebranded for its Off-Broadway debut at the Union Square Theatre.The show is not a cut-and-paste biography of Lennon or an emulation of the original recordings.Waters said he shies away from imitating the artist, but so emotive is his performance, it lulls the audience into believing anything is possible.”The song Glass Onion was John Lennon’s postscript to The Beatles,” he said.”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,” D’Arrietta said.
