The Who's Tommy is a 5 Tony award-winning musical with a live band and talented cast
San Diego award-winning director Jennie Gray Connard and musical director Kirk Valles is back with another amazing show here at OB Playhouse
With book by Des McAnuff and Pete Townshend, music and lyrics by Pete Townshend, and additional music and lyrics by John Entwistle and Keith Moon, a deaf, dumb and blind boy's journey from pain to triumph is a sensory-defying rock and roll experience.
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 to become an international messiah has inspired, amazed and puzzled audiences for more than 40 years. This five-time Tony Award-winning musical was translated to the stage by theatrical wizard, Des McAnuff, into a high-energy, one-of-a-kind theatrical event.
