A rock-and-roll adventure explodes in The Who’s Tommy. Released in 1969, the rock-opera Tommy became the first concept album of its kind, chronicling the story of a young man whose life is forever altered and defined by a terrible act of violence, all amidst a backdrop of gritty power chords. Based on the album and composed by legendary guitarist Pete Townshend, The Who’s Tommy takes audiences on the journey of a child who lives buried inside himself, only to become a man who lives too much for others, and his ultimate discovery that what sets us apart is what gives us our place in the world. With a Tony-award winning score that “lifts the audience right out of its seats” and a rock-concert staging, Jeff Award-nominated third-year MFA directing student Geoff Button brings the story of Tommy to light in a new, electrifying way.
