JOHN WATERS - Looking Through A Glass Onion

JOHN WATERS - Looking Through A Glass Onion
Friday, June 06 2014, Doors 7.45pm, Show starts 8.30pm

UP CLOSE & PERSONAL, An Intimate Performance

Homage to the music, mystery and memory of John Lennon. 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 as he explores the essence 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. ‘Rather than to impersonate, I wanted to evoke his honesty, bitter-sweet humour, self criticism and disdain for pretentiousness and pomposity’, says Waters. ‘The song Glass Onion was John Lennon’s postscript to The Beatles. 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’, agrees D’Arrietta with Waters.

For the audience this is either an emotional trip down memory lane or a wonderful introduction to the life and times of one of the most fascinating icons of our time. With 31 songs performed including to name a few, ‘A Day in the Life’, ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’, ‘Revolution’, ‘Lucy In the Sky with Diamonds’, ‘Woman’, ‘Jealous Guy’, ‘Imagine’ and more, this is a show for all ages.

Box Office transation fees apply.

Faulty Towers The Dining Experience
- Having filled the first half of this year with Fringe World Perth, Adelaide Fringe and Melbourne International Comedy Festival, as well as various independent venues – including Sydney Opera House – this legendary Australian show comes/returns to Ballina in July 2014.

Waited upon by Basil, Sybil and Manuel, this is fully immersive, highly improvised and site-specific comedy theatre at its best. Only one third of the show scripted, so anything can happen as you take a seat in the 'Fawlty Towers' restaurant… Expect all the best gags, shambolic service and a ‘70s style 3-course meal in ‘a hilarious battle of wits, patience, fire extinguishers and fine food’ (Australian Traveller magazine, Sydney Opera House). Just don’t mention the war! Internationally acclaimed by audiences and critics alike.
