Musical theatre lovers rejoice! The Who’s Tommy returns on a smaller stage with a large cast chockfull of heart and talent.
The original Broadway play revolves around a deaf and blind boy named Tommy who suffers from family-related trauma. He develops catatonia as a result of an unshakeable experience, and overcomes his condition through his love and skill for pinball.
The sizable cast commands the room with incredible vocals, and does not lack in the realm of fancy footwork. Director Janna Larsen brings rock and roll theatre to a new level with this exhilarating rendition of a classic Broadway gem.
