John Waters “Looking Through A Glass Onion” Australian Tour

John Waters and Stewart D’Arrietta took to the small stage at the Tilbury Hotel, Woolloomooloo, Sydney with their debut production of “Looking Through A Glass Onion”.  What was an initially a one week booking quickly sold out and extended into a six week, sell out season.  Thus the original seed of “Looking Through A Glass Onion” was born.

Fast forward 20 years and this groundbreaking production is being revived and will tour Australia for one final time before heading to the US. After many successful and sold out “Looking Through A Glass Onion” tours, John and Stewart have decided to return to their ‘up close and personal’ intimate Two Man show and will be bringing it to capital cities around Australia in April and May 2012.

John Waters national tour of  “Looking Through A Glass Onion” commenced in November 2010 at the Sydney Opera House with a sell out two week season. The production quickly extended throughout 2011 taking in over 40,000 ticket sales nationally to be one of the longest running Australian tours of recent times and is second only to ColdChisel as the highest selling Australian Artist tour.

This is a last chance opportunity for Australia to see this show for quite some time as discussions are underway to take the show to the US, Asia and New Zealand.

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, John Waters explores theessence 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.
