RIVERSIDE – "Lennon: Through a Glass Onion" will be live at the Fox Performing Arts Center in Riverside for two performances on Saturday, November 19 at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m..

It is a celebration of one of the most distinct voices of his generation: John Lennon.
Featuring a catalogue of Lennon's greatest songs including “Woman” and “Jealous Guy,” as well as his collaborations with Paul McCartney including “A Day in the Life,” “Strawberry Fields Forever,” “Revolution,” and “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds,” this intimate production reveals the essence of the life and times of one of the most admired icons of all time.
