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

Season 18 at the Mad Cow Theatre Company is here, and up first: The Who's Tommy. The 1993 Best Musical nominee is considered to be Broadway's first Rock Opera turned Rock Musical. Shows like Greenday's AMERICAN IDIOT, Stew's PASSING STRANGE, and, more recently, David Byrne and Fatboy Slim's HERE LIES LOVE all followed. But it was The Who that first took their concept rock album and turned it into a warm-blooded stage musical. In doing so they attracted a younger audience (that once looked at Musical Theatre as something their grandparents listened to on vinyl) to Broadway. (more...)

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.
