Tim Piper did an amazing job as John Lennon. His voice and charisma
were incredible. He truly broke through the 4th wall and made himself totally accessible to the audience..who loved him. A real high point was having the crowd (very willingly)...continued

The whole proformance was authentic and real for me as I relived the 60's and 70's and was amply educated about a life that still seems so mis understood. The presentation was intimate and dynamic and the background graphics and movies were...continued

This is a wonderful show, with a good narrator, who relates the life of John Lennon. He provided context and meaning to familiar lyrics. The story is peppered with lots of Beatles and Lennon songs, expertly performed. He not only captures the...continued

This was such a FANTASTIC show!! We had great seats (front four rows, center section). If you really want an "up close and personal" experience, sit in the front row as Tim Piper walks into the audience and interacts with people in the front row....continued

Essentially a tribute band with "John Lennon" bantering between songs. Don't expect a fleshed-out play about Lennon's life including music.

If you're happy with the tribute band format, you'll have a satisfying evening that falls far short of...continued

Tim Piper as John Lennon was very good! They cover music from John Lennon’s entire career. I liked the fact that they had a small bit of story along with music & original video. At one point Tim entered the audience with only a guitar and took...continued

Tim Piper did a great job of telling John Lennon's story. The music was spot on and touched upon Lennon's entire catalog....not an easy thing to do in just two short hours. We also learned a lot about what made Lennon tick as a performer and as...continued

I totally loved it! Great performance. I went last time they came in Studio City and I was impressed. However, this year the venue was not soo great but still worth watching.

Tim Piper WAS John Lennon! We were so amazed at the details given about John in this performance (which made the show very unique), as well as the musical talent by Piper and the band. We truly felt like we were seeing John perform his last...continued

Stunning! I can't wait to go back and bring friends! Tim Piper is an incredible "John Lennon" and the entire
band (Greg Piper, Don Poncher, Morley Bartnoff and Don Butler) are outstanding,
and really rock!! I was brought to tears several times...continued

Great impersonation of John Lennon! His life story, and the Beatles story, was blended well with the music and imagery. The guy even came out into the audience to do requests for other songs. I loved hearing, "A Day in the Life" live for the...continued

Great. Intimate setting, every seat was a great seat. The sound system was excellent. The performance was excellent. This show should be on Broadway.
