The Who's TOMMY at Island ETC

ETC ROCKS WITH THE WHO’S TOMMY
March 4th through April 2nd, 2016

Island ETC (East-End Theatre Company) continues its 13th season with the explosive rock and roll musical The Who’s TOMMY. This hit musical, winner of five Tony Awards, is based on The Who’s iconic 1969 concept album written by guitarist Pete Townshend. The double album TOMMY told an exhilarating story of hope, healing and the human spirit. The telling of a full story on an album became known as a rock opera and influenced many later classic albums and eventually musicals.

In 1993, Des Anuff and Pete Townshend created the stage version of this now famous story about a young boy (Tommy) who witnesses a terrible event that leaves him ‘blind, deaf, and dumb.’ His fortunes change when he discovers a pinball machine. Led by an inner vision, Tommy becomes a worldwide sensation as “The Pinball Wizard.”
