Tim Piper is excellent as John Lennon. The background videos also very good. He interacts with the audience a bit, which is fun. Parking in the lot is quite expensive ($15, I believe), so try to get there early to find street parking. It was a...continued

Wonderful performance. The musicians/actors were exceptional.
Really focuses on John Lennon's side of of the story with humor, irony and enthusiasm.
Highly recommend. Great sound set-up too-if you lived through this it is not loud at all; just right.

Although I definitely am not in the target demographic, I loved the spirit and the interwoven nature of the music and the stories.

I hated this performance and left at intermission. There is no meaningful writing or direction behind the performance. The band is too loud and only so-so. Tim Piper is too old to play Lennon, and since this is an impersonation, rather than an...continued

This is a great event over all. It is more entertaining if you are particularly a Lennon fan. Focuses specifically on his life. Overall Beatle fans would probabaly enjoy the Abbey Road show more. With that said this is very entertaining the music,...continued

This show was a real treat! Excellent musicianship, fabulous harmonies, interesting antidotes, and a rather elaborate visual display on a screen behind the performers. I absolutely loved it! A must for anyone who was ever a John Lennon fan. My...continued

I really enjoyed this event. Small venue so the music was a little too loud. I learned new info about John Lennon and the Beetles.

Really fun! Loved the concept of John looking back. Excellent musicans. Put on a great show with lots of insight into John's life. 5 guys giving it up. We were running a lil late and they waited for us.

Really outstanding show!!! Tim Piper is spot-on as John Lennon. His band-mates are likewise gifted musicians true to the Beatles groove, who occasionally gave their own enhancements to the songs in a good way. Tim really took us on the journey...continued

Very entertaining. A fast 90 minutes filled with classic John Lennon music. Story line could be tighter, but the lead did an excellent job.

Everyone in the theater was so nice and welcoming. Great parking and theater was clean and comfy. The show was good but music was so loud my ears still hurt. The theater did sell earplugs, which was a little odd. There was a heckler which I don't...continued

Fantastic musicians, great first-person stories from "John." Made me almost believe he was really there. For those of you who still miss John as much as I do, you have to see this show. And a truly nice guy to boot- meet him in the lobby after the...continued
