Laredo Theater Guild International presents The Who’s Tommy! This production will be live onstage July 21-31, 2016!
Peter Townshend’s tale of a young boy’s journey from pain and triumph is the most electrifying evening of rock and roll ever to play in a theatre! After witnessing the accidental murder of his mother’s lover by his father, Tommy is traumatized into catatonia, and as the boy grows, he suffers abuse at the hands of his sadistic relatives and neighbors. As an adolescent, he’s discovered to have an uncanny knack for playing pinball, and when his mother finally breaks through his catatonia, he becomes an international pinball superstar.
The Rock Opera TOMMY, which was first performed by The Who in 1969, was originally conceived by Peter Townshend and Kit Lambert with contributions to the development by John Entwistle, Keith Moon, and Roger Daltrey.
