Pete Townshend’s tale of a young boy’s journey from pain to enlightenment is the most electrifying evening of rock and roll ever to play in a theatre!

Synopsis: After witnessing a murder, Tommy is traumatized into a hysterical state of catatonia. While in his inner world, he contacts a part of himself that most people rarely touch. His inner life is full of “amazing journeys” while his outer life is filled with abuse at the hands of his sadistic relatives and neighbors. Discovered to have an uncanny knack for playing pinball, Tommy becomes a celebrity, breaks through his personal walls and becomes an international pinball superstar.
