About This Show

The Who’s Tommy, Pete Townshend’s tale of a young boy’s journey from pain to triumph, is the most electrifying evening of rock and roll ever to play in a theater. 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 open on Broadway on April 22, 1993 and has since been seen in countless productions around the globe.
