MICHAEL C. MOORE | VIEWPOINT, Kitsap Sun: Before it was a Broadway musical, 'Tommy' changed the rock-music…
Peter Townshend’s tale of a young boy’s journey from pain to triumph is the most electrifying evening of rock and roll ever to play in a theater!
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.
Video / Projection Designer Luke Walker and Costume Designer Candace Frank are hard at work on BPA’s upcoming production of The Who’s TOMMY, a high-energy, one-of-a-kind theatrical event that’s sure to be a sensation this October on Bainbridge Island. Check out some of the advance imagery here.
