Based on the iconic 1969 rock concept album, The Who’s Tommy is an exhilarating story of hope, healing, and the human spirit. After witnessing the murder of his mother’s lover by his father, young Tommy is traumatized into a catatonic state. As he grows, he suffers abuse at the hands of his dysfunctional relatives and neighbours. As an adolescent, he’s discovered to have an uncanny knack for playing pinball. With the help of his mother he finally breaks through his catatonia and becomes an international pinball superstar. 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 forty 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.
This show contains mature subject matter, coarse language and is intended for adult audiences. Viewer discretion is advised.
