Sunday May 8, 2011 / 3:00pmJust Imagine: The Legend Returns
Abbey Road Section (Front Center)
How was your experience?
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. Tim clearly knows John Lennon's story inside and out as he conveys the backstory of a lot of what was going on in Lennon's life. Tim's voice and energy very much capture the essence of Lennon. The transitions between story and song are seamless and the writing and performing are very creative and clever. Even if you are VERY familiar with the Beatles and Lennon, you'll find some new tidbit to relish. And if you're not as familiar with the Beatles, you'll really enjoy the educational experience. The entire band-- YES, there's a full band of VERY TALENTED musicians, including the incredible Morley Bartnoff (who has his own project, Cosmo Topper) on keyboard -- was INCREDIBLE. If you're sensitive to sound, you might want to bring earplugs as this is a regular concert event. You will be touched, inspired and impressed. I was told the show will run through the end of May, and could be extended through June if there is enough demand. I want to tell EVERYONE about this show. I recently saw "Rain" at The Pantages, and thought this was even more entertaining and effective. This project has been in development since 2002 and if you've seen it in one of its past incarnations, you'll want to come and see how it's developed. The audio-visual component of the program is absolutely SPECTACULAR. Your imagination of how great this show is will only be exceeded by the show itself. The Hayworth Theatre is conveniently located just west of downtown LA on Wilshire Blvd between Hoover and Alvarado. There is also an attended parking lot next door to the theatre. (We paid a flat rate of $5 during the Sunday matinee performance.) Refreshments are also available in the theatre. Bring a sweater or jacket, as it can be a little cool in the theatre. Don't wait. Get tickets today to experience Tim Piper's "Just Imagine." The legendary John Lennon has indeed returned to educate, to entertain and to inspire us.
