BWW Reviews: The Who's TOMMY at Mad Cow TheatreBWW Reviews: The Who's TOMMY at Mad Cow Theatre
by Justin J Sacramone - Oct 8, 2014

by Jeff Davis - Aug 7, 2014

Excuse me if I'm suffering from a case of deja vu. Last year, theatergoers in Central Texas got to see Austin's Zach Theatre and San Antonio's Playhouse duke it out with competing productions of Les Miserables. I was fortunate enough to see both productions, and in the battle of the barricades, I declared a draw. Naturally, Zach and The Playhouse's current production of The Who's Tommy feels like a rematch. So which has the pinball wizard winner? The answer is: both. While Zach's production is a feast for the senses, The Playhouse's production places its focus squarely on its awe-inspiring cast.
