Based on The Who‘s 1969 rock concept album, Tommy is a story of hope and healing. The story of the deaf, dumb and blind boy who triumphs over his adversities has inspired audiences for more than 40 years. At the end of the Vietnam War, Tommy‘s paratrooper father returns home to his family. When Tommy sees his father accidentally kill a man, he is traumatized into catatonia. As an adolescent, he discovers his amazing talent for pinball and he becomes an international superstar as the “Pinball Wizard.” Music & Lyrics by Pete Townshend.
