The Who's Tommy

Peter Townshend’s tale of a young boy’s journey from pain to triumph is electrifying. Post WWII England, Tommy becomes catatonic after he witnesses the murder of his mother's lover by his father. When his pinball playing ability is discovered, he is able to break from his catatonia and becomes an international superstar. This powerful tale of a deaf, mute and blind pin-ball player who becomes an international messiah bursts on the stage in this multi-award winning adaptation of the original chart-topping rock album. Hit songs include "Pinball Wizard", "See Me, Feel Me,Touch Me" "Sensation" and more.

**This production will require a high level of energy and maturity from all cast members.
