- Opening Night:
The Who’s Tommy is an exhilarating kaleidoscope of music and passion. First released as a rock opera concept album in 1969, Tommy went on to become a 1970’s cult classic film and a ground-breaking live theatrical event in the 1990’s. Tommy was nominated for 11 Tony Awards and went on to scoop 5 awards including Best Score – as well as winning the Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album.
The Who’s Tommy is a truly authentic rock musical – an entertainment juggernaut – that tells the story of a deaf, dumb and blind kid who endures a life of abuse and ridicule until the day he happens to play a pinball machine and suddenly breaks free – becoming the ‘Pinball Wizard’ and international superstar! Rock legend Pete Townshend joined forces with theatrical legend Des McAnuff to create this timeless, rocking, high-energy show. The pinball wizard is well and truly back – and not to be missed!
