PREVIEW: Mazel Tov, John Lennon

This is the world premiere of the show and you can see it this Thursday thru Saturday (4/11-4/13) at 8pm or on Sunday (4/14) at 2pm.  Beware, the last showing is April 14th, so this is your last week to see the show. The show is taking place at Theatre Nova which is a local Ann Arbor establishment located at 410 W. Huron, Ann Arbor. You can buy tickets in advance for $22, or if you show up right before the play you can purchase a last-second-pay-what-you-want ticket, which is great for anyone trying to save money.

This show takes place during the Vietnam war when the U.S. tried to deport John Lennon over marijuana possession. It is a play that will contrast relaxed, witty, chill personalities with hardline, uptight, angry personalities.

This is the description from Theater Nova’s website: January 1972: Vietnam war protests are at their peak, and newly ex-Beatled John Lennon walks into the office of Leon Wildes, an eminent immigration lawyer. As ultra-laid-back Lennon and straight-laced Wildes navigate Lennon’s stormy immigration case, an unlikely and comical kinship unfolds, and both men gain a greater understanding of friendship, personal values, and patriotism. Based on the true story of the Nixon administration’s attempt to deport John Lennon.

If you’re a Beatles fan, this show is a must see.

I am a senior studying business and I have lots of travelling experience in Asia. I am very pessimistic and opinionated about life, but art brings me happiness and I hope my pessimism isn't apparent in my reviews, for the sake of the artists!
