The Who's Tommy

The Who's Tommy

First performed on Broadway in 1993, The Who's Tommy will return to Broadway in 2021, directed by two-time Tony Award-winner Des McAnuff, who also directed the original Broadway production.

Released in 1969, Tommy told the story of Tommy Walker, a young boy traumatized into seeming deafness and blindness. However, his pinball wizardry launches him on a path toward a messianic movement, with songs on the album including 'I'm Free' and 'Pinball Wizard'. 

Following its release, the band toured the album, playing it virtually in full at iconic locations such as Woodstock, the Metropolitan Opera House, and the Isle of Wright Festival.  In 1971, the Seattle Opera produced a staged production of Tommy at Seattle's Moore Theatre. In 1972 The Who released a version of Tommy backed by the London Symphony Orchestra. In 1975, a film version of Tommy was released featuring Elton John, Tina Turner, Oliver Reed, Ann-Margaret, Jack Nicholson, and starring Roger Daltrey in the title role.

Tickets will be on sale soon.
