The Who's Tommy


Pete Townshend’s tale of a young boy’s journey from pain to triumph is an electrifying evening of rock and roll.


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.


This production was produced by New Cavern Productions, directed by Steven Burke, and performed at Theatre Horizon in Norristown, PA.
