This was a lot of fun with interesting points about Lennon's life. Just bring some earplugs cause it's pretty loud.

I loved the show!!!!! The lead was so comfortable in his role, you felt like it was really John Lennon. It brought me back in time and I learned what inspired him to write each of his songs. The music was great! This is a must see show!

If I was just rating Tim Piper, I would give him five stars, but the venue was terrible. Last year I saw him at Platinum in Studio City. A very high end supper club. It was intimate, and very comfortable. The Hayworth is a run down theatre...continued

The loudness of the "music" was deafening. Words could not be discerned and the evening was one huge nightmare headache.

I respect the artist, but not for one minute was I convinced I was listening to Lennon. We left at intermission.

My fiance is a huge Beatles fan so this was a must see for him. I recommend getting there early because there aren't assigned seats so my party wasn't seated together. Great music, production was well done.

Very moving performance. Tim Piper captured the essence of John Lennon brilliantly, and turned what could easily have been a "cheesy" production into an emotional look at the life of a legend. Musicians were terrific and engaging, as well.

Over 1 1/2 hours of non stop fun. Not a bad seat in the house. Would highly recommend this show.

It was a very entertaining multimedia show with many great Lennon/Beatles songs; Tim Piper and the band do an excellent job. Given the small theater, it's not really worth the extra money to sit up close; we sat 6th row center in the Strawberry...continued

The Hayworth Theatre is an experience in itself. To attend Just Imagine and go back in time with John Lennon in this Theatre, was a fun,exciting and tastefully produced musical journey.
It was a "full house". Arrive early and go in when doors open...continued

I'm not a long-time Lennon fan, but of course am familiar with much of his work. Piper does a great job as John Lennon, and the band is tight. I thought the vocal mix was a bit buried most of the time, but the music was still great, and it was a...continued

Loved it! I'm not a Beatles fan and bought these tix for husband who is a die-hard Beatles fan and we both really loved it. The theater is small and intimate, the crowd was so chill and fun, singing along to many of the songs. I really enjoyed...continued

Saw this three years ago, bigger theater and not so loud! The restrooms were unusable, and parking was poor. Had to pay in lot next door.. Go early for parking, they do sell the cheap ear plugs for a buck, but bring your own.

The volume was a little loud and the incense a bit strong when you walk in, but otherwise a great show!

This was a great evening of good music and fond remembrances! Delightful experience. It made me wonder what John would be like now as he was still evolving when we lost him.
