John Lennon show
John Waters is performing at the Redlands Arts Performance Centre (RPAC) on Sunday 21 September in a tribute to the music, mystery and enigma that was John Lennon in the production Looking Through a Glass Onion.

Partnering with Stewart D'Arrietta, this two-man show will perform 31 songs including many well known such as Strawberry Fields Forever, Lucy In the Sky with Diamonds, Woman, Jealous Guy and Imagine. The RPAC website claims it is 'not a cut-and-paste biography of Lennon' or an attempt to emulate Lennon's original work but more a way to 'explore the essence of the man through song and spoken word'.

Looking Through a Glass Onion started in 1992 at the intimate Tilbury Hotel in Woolloomooloo, Sydney, and became a roaring success running for several weeks. This led to a national tour to over 100 venues during 2010-13. This show is a prelude to its launch Off Broadway in New York. It's a great opportunity to see it in the Brisbane region at an affordable price of $55 for adults and $50 for all concessions and is suitable for children.
