The Who’s Tommy

Pete 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.

    I’ve seen Noah Salmanson, who plays 10 year old Tommy, in a past production, and he’s terrific — a real star in the making. Can’t wait to see him and the rest of the cast in Tommy! Great choice of play, by the way.
