The outdoor Moonlight Amphitheatre will be rocking this production featuring some of The Who's best-known hits, including "See Me, Feel Me," "Pinball Wizard," "Tommy, Can You Hear Me?", and "I'm Free."

"The Who's TOMMY" is a rock musical by Pete Townshend and Des McAnuffbased on The Who's 1969 double album rock opera "Tommy," also by Pete Townshend, which premiered at La Jolla Playhouse in July 1992. After witnessing his father accidentally kill his mother's lover, the young boy Tommy is so traumatized that he loses his ability to speak and withdraws from the world. As life goes on in post-World War II England, Tommy is abused by sadistic relatives and neighbors. What saves his life is falling in love with pinball. He becomes such an expert at the game that he becomes an international superstar and a messianic figure to youth around the world.
Directed by Des McAnuff, TOMMY debuted on Broadway in April 1993 and was an immediate hit, playing for 900 performances and then being produced by various touring companies throughout North America and Europe.
