Musician John Power is set to play John Lennon in a new musical. Power – guitarist in the La's and singer in the group Cast – will make his theatrical debut in Rob Eaton's musical Lennon at the Royal Court Liverpool. The show follows Lennon's life from his childhood in Liverpool through to his later years in New York. Power will play the role of the older Lennon – who acts as the show's narrator. Having grown up in Penny Lane himself, Power went to the same schools as John (Dovedale and Quarry Bank).
As many as 40 songs are featured in the show, including 'All You Need Is Love', 'Lucy in The Sky With Diamonds', 'In My Life', and 'A Hard Day’s Night', and John’s own, 'Imagine'.
