Peeling the Glass Onion

In 1992 John Waters and Stewart DArrietta took to the stage in a Sydney pub to present their debut production Looking Through A Glass Onion. What was initially a weeks booking sold out and extended to a six-week season. This seeded a show that continues to fill houses both in Australia and overseas more than 20 years later.

….

Waters closes the show with Imagine. Its perhaps the song that Lennon is most remembered for.

Its about the concept of visualisation, and that was a big thing for Yoko as well. She had a big influence on that song; she used that word a lot in her poetry. Much as Yoko gets maligned for sticking her nose in, she never claims authorship, and he uses her as an influence a lot.
