Celebrate Love, Life and Lennon
Theatre Within’s Annual John Lennon Tribute charity concert joyfully celebrates John Lennon’s life, music and timeless message of peace, love and social activism.
From its humble beginnings in 1981 as a neighborhood gathering on Manhattan’s Upper Westside, the Tribute has evolved into an important New York City cultural event, attracting top artists and fans from around the world.
Proceeds from the Tribute help fund Theatre Within’s ongoing free workshops, including the John Lennon Real Love Project songwriting workshop, for children who have lost a parent to cancer and adult cancer survivors at Gilda's Club, NYC. In addition, Theatre Within provides ongoing workshops in meditation, art and puppet-making, all at no cost to the NY-metro cancer community.
Starting in the fall of 2019, contingent on funding, Theatre Within will offer the John Lennon Real Love Project to public schools in the New York metropolitan area for free.
