“Looking Through A Glass Onion” began as a performance in a small venue. The show’s creator, John Waters, says, “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 kitchen 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.”

It was 1992. John Waters and Stewart D’Arrietta performed on a small stage at the Tilbury Hotel, Woolloomooloo, Sydney with their debut production of “Looking Through A Glass Onion”.  The show was only booked for one week, but after stellar performances, the show quickly sold out and extended into a six week, sell out season.  

The National Tour of “Looking Through A Glass Onion” continued in November 2010 at the Sydney Opera House. With a sell out 2 week season, the production continued throughout 2011 and 2012. With 65,000 ticket sales nationally, “Looking Through A Glass Onion” is one of the ‘highest selling Australian Artist tours in recent years’.

Waters could not be happier. “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…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.

The two man show is set to launch an off Broadway production in New York.
