The Who’s Tommy

29th July – 23rd August 2015 – Greenwich Theatre

 

Based on the iconic 1969 double album rock opera, 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, amazed and puzzled audiences for more than 40 years.

 

This five-time TONY Award, four-time Drama Desk Award and three-time Olivier Award winning musical was translated to the stage by theatrical wizard Des McAnuff (Jersey Boys, Guys & Dolls, Jesus Christ Superstar) and Pete Townshend into a high-energy, one-of-a-kind theatrical event.
