      Smiley faceMUSICAL Book by Des McAnuff & Pete Townshend Music and Lyrics by Pete Townshend Additional Music and Lyrics by John Entwistle Keith Moon Performances: Friday, November 15 2019 at 8 pm Saturday, November 16 2019 at 8 pm Sunday, November 17 2019 2 pm Wednesday, November 20 2019 at 8 pm Thursday, November 21 2019 at 8 pm Friday, November 22 2019 at 8 pm Saturday, November 23 2019 at 8 pm Sunday, November 24 2019 at 2 pm Based on the iconic 1969 rock concept album, The Who's Tommy is an exhilarating story of hope, healing and the human spirit. The story of the pinball-playing, deaf, dumb and blind boy who triumphs over his adversities has inspired, amazed and puzzled audiences for more than 40 years. This five-time Tony Award-winning musical was translated to the stage by theatrical wizard, Des McAnuff, into a high-energy, one-of-a-kind theatrical event. After witnessing the accidental murder of his mother's lover by his father, Tommy is traumatized into catatonia and, as the boy grows, he suffers abuse at the hands of his sadistic relatives and neighbors. As an adolescent, he's discovered to have an uncanny knack for playing pinball and, when his mother finally breaks through his catatonia, he becomes an international pinball superstar. The Who's Tommy features an exhilarating score that is timeless in its youthful appeal, giving the show a cross-generational appeal that has made it a smash-hit in high schools and colleges around the world. A small rock band orchestration allows you to capture the excitement of the New York production on a modest budget.
