Looking Through A Glass Onion....John Waters

Australian actor John Waters' interpretation of the life of John Lennon was a huge hit at the box office when originally staged in the early '90s. The show was a narrative combined with the music of Lennon from both The Beatles and his solo recordings. Waters and his band do the music justice and capture the essence of Lennon's songs. John Waters said at the time that he wasn't trying to sound like Lennon, yet his narrative has the Liverpool accent down to a tee, and if you close your eyes you will almost swear it's John Lennon talking. Waters has recently revived the show to rave reviews once more.
