Based on the iconic 1969 rock concept album, The Who's TOMMY is an exhilarating story of hope, healing and the human spirit. The story of the pinball-playing, deaf, dumb and blind boy who triumphs over his adversities has inspired and amazed audiences for 50 years.
In 1975 the album was adapted to the screen in a film featuring Anne Margaret, Elton John and Tina Turner as the Acid Queen.
Truer to Pete Townsend’s original vision, the theatrical presentation of TOMMY premiered on Broadway in 1992. This five-time Tony Award-winning musical was translated for the stage into a high-energy, one-of-a-kind theatrical event!
