The performance was great! Costumes, singing, and music was fabulous! Not a bad seat in the house at the Cargill.

Extraordinary and exultant! Bravi! The only small criticism was the musical interpretation of "I'm Free", a little too light.

Description

_The Who’s Tommy _

Music and Lyrics by Pete Townshend

Book by Pete Townshend and Des Mcanuff

Additional Music and Lyrics by John Entwistle and Keith Moon

Originally Produced on Broadway by Pace Theatrical Group and Dodger Production with Kardana Productions

The Who’s Tommy is a roof-raising musical explosion based on a concept album by the band The Who. This exhilarating story of hope, healing and the human spirit is filled with iconic hits. After witnessing a traumatic event, young Tommy Walker goes deaf, blind and mute. Cut off from society, he is ridiculed and taken advantage of until Tommy discovers a talent for pinball wizardry that allows him to break through, inspiring youth around the world. The Who’s Tommy contains great classic rock songs including “Pinball Wizard,” “I’m Free” and “Sensation.”
