Theatre Within, in association with Music Without Borders, presents the 41st Annual John Lennon Tribute charity concert. A New York City tradition since 1981, the Tribute joyously celebrates John Lennon’s life, music and timeless message of peace and love.
This year's Tribute features Ani DiFranco, who will receive the 2021 "John Lennon Real Love Award" in recognition of, as Yoko Ono said, "her stirring songs and social advocacy on women's right and other important issues.'
Ms. DiFranco will perform a set of her favorite John Lennon classics and be joined by a stellar line-up of artists featuring: Bettye LaVette, Joan Osborne, KT Tunstall, Nona Hendryx (Labelle), Rich Pagano (Fab Faux), and more artists TBA.
Proceeds will help support the “John Lennon Real Love Project” songwriting program, which Theatre Within provides at no cost to public elementary schools. In addition, Theatre Within provides the John Lennon Real Love Project, and many other free workshops (over 200 this year) in creative expression, to children, teens and adults impacted by cancer.
