Looking Through A Glass Onion – John Waters
In 1992, John Waters and Stewart D’Arrietta took to the small stage at the Tilbury Hotel, Woolloomooloo, Sydney with their debut production of “Looking Through A Glass Onion”. What was an initially a one week booking quickly sold out and extended into a six week, sell out season. Thus the original seed of “Looking For A Glass Onion” was born.
Fast forward, after a massive 137-date tour in 2010/2011/2012, John and Stewart are returning with their “up close and personal” 2 man show in 2014 whilst gearing up toward launching the production Off Broadway in New York.
“It began its life as a small venue piece with just Stewart D’Arrietta and myself on stage at the Tilbury Hotel in Sydney. I made my entrance from a kichen and climbed over patron’s laps to scramble onto a tiny raised platform in the corner of the room. The audience and I were inescapably intimate with each other from the very start, and I kinda like that. Not every venue we play this time around can be exactly like that, but it’s the feeling I want to create – to take the show back to its roots” says John Waters.
The National Tour of “Looking Through A Glass Onion” commenced in November 2010 at the Sydney Opera House, with a sell out 2 week season the production quickly extended throughout 2011 and 2012 taking in over 65,000 ticket sales nationally to be one of the ‘highest selling Australian Artist tours in recent years’.
“Its been fantastic the response the show is receiving, especially from the younger audiences that are coming along, some of whom were not even born when Lennon and The Beatles were recording and releasing their music, it’s a testament to the legacy of the man and his music that still excites and intrigues people to this day” says Waters.
“It never ceases to amaze us how many people still request to see the show, even after our last lengthy tour, we’re constantly getting emails and messages asking when is the show coming back, so its great that the demand and interest is always there”, says Waters.
