The Tribute is the longest running event of its kind and the only ongoing tribute show in the country to have earned the support of Yoko Ono.

Additionally, Playing For Change Foundation, with the support of Theatre Within, will also launch its worldwide “Power to the People” fundraising campaign in November. “John’s music and message continue to be a great inspiration to people all around the world, but he holds a special place in the hearts of New Yorkers,” noted Joe Raiola, who in addition to producing the Tribute, will be performing in it for the 30th consecutive year. “John and his music still live on, and gathering in his memory and honor is a great joy.” “We are thrilled to participate as Theatre Within’s charity partner for the 30th Annual John Lennon Tribute,” said Whitney Kroenke, co-founder and executive director of Playing For Change Foundation. “John Lennon was a hugely inspirational artist and a humanitarian of epic proportions and we are honored that Yoko has given Playing For Change Foundation her blessing, as it is our mission to inspire, connect and bring peace to the world through music.” ABOUT THEATRE WITHIN Theatre Within is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit Performing Arts Presenter dedicated to producing benefit shows for outstanding charities and important social causes.
