Based on the iconic 1969 concept album, The Who’s Tommy is the multi-award winning rock opera written by Pete Townshend.
Tommy is traumatized into a catatonic state after witnessing the murder of his mother’s lover by his father. Unable to speak, hear or see, Tommy survives an abusive childhood to become a pinball playing wizard and an international superstar adored by thousands of fans.
Tommy has entertained audiences for more than 40 years with its story of the triumph of the human spirit. With 22 performers and musicians live onstage, its epic score includes Tommy Can You Hear Me, I’m Free, See Me, Feel Me and Pinball Wizard.
