LENNON: THROUGH A GLASS ONION
INTERNATIONALLY ACCLAIMED THEATRICAL PRODUCTION
KICKS OFF CANADIAN TOUR OCTOBER 25
TORONTO, ON - Following its Off-Broadway New York success, and acclaimed season at Liverpool's prestigious Epstein Theatre, the celebration of the genius and music of John Lennon, Lennon: Through a Glass Onion, makes its Canada debut this fall. Inspired by the song "Glass Onion," which was John Lennon's postscript to The Beatles, the critically acclaimed show peels away the layers of time and myth to offer insight into the essence of the life and astonishing talent of one of the world's most treasured icons.
Part-concert and part-biography, this two-hander featuring West End star Daniel Taylor and Stewart D'Arrietta, showcases 31 hits of Lennon and Lennon/McCartney including "Imagine", "Revolution", "Jealous Guy", "A Day in the Life", "Strawberry Fields Forever", and "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" in a kaleidoscope collage of song, word and emotion. Lennon's unparalleled genius, spirit and illustrious catalogue are brought to life on-stage in "Lennon: Through a Glass Onion," a celebration of one of the most distinct voices of his generation.
