John Power set to return to Liverpool stage as John Lennon. The La’s and Cast star won acclaim for his portrayal of the late Beatle when he made his acting debut in Lennon at the Royal Court last summer.
Now the theatre is set to bring back the popular show, which will form part of the Cultural Programme underpinning the International Festival for Business 2014 – the global business festival hosted by Liverpool for the UK taking place in June and July. John Power said today: “I’m really looking forward to catching up with the cast again. “It was a great challenge last time and the whole experience last time was a bit mind-blowing to be honest. “If the performances are anything like last year’s then the audiences will love it so hopefully we can pick up where we left off and it’ll be a great show.” The rest of the cast from 2013 have all been approached and many are confirmed including Tom Connor as Paul McCartney , Mark Newnham as young Lennon and Kirsten Foster as Yoko Ono.
