Off-Broadway Review: LENNON: THROUGH A GLASS ONION

In the pantheon of 20th century music John Lennon ranks in the highest echelons. An artistic martyr, he is near unanimously appreciated as a figurehead of the hippy era with his life and death mythologized to the point of legend. In Lennon: Through A Glass Onion at The Union Square Theatre, John R. Waters and accompanist Stewart D'Arrietta give a minimalist documentization of Lennon's life and work. Sadly though, this piece exhumes neither the personal humanity or sense of artistic connection that rendered him an icon and which retains him in the artistic psyche still today.
