BWW Review: THE WHO'S TOMMY Inspiring Story of Hope and Healing
by Frank Benge - Sep 20, 2018

THE WHO'S Tommy is a rock musical with music and lyrics by Pete Townshend and book by Townshend and Des McAnuff, based on The Who's 1969 rock opera Tommy. There are several plot differences between the album, the film, and the stage production, though the general storyline is largely the same. The biggest difference in the story is the new finale, which was rewritten in 1993. Originally, Tommy instructs his followers to become deaf, dumb, and blind themselves in order to achieve enlightenment. In the 1993 rewrite, Tommy instructs them to not emulate him, but to live their own lives. In both versions, the crowd rejects both him and his message. Inspiration for the stage show came from the 1969 concept album, Tommy by The Who. It was the first album ever billed as a rock opera. The album has sold over 20 million copies worldwide and, before becoming a stage musical, it was also the basis for an all star recording that paved the way for the 1975 film of the same name. It first premiered on Broadway in 1993. Acclaimed director, Des McAnuff, and Pete Townshend sculpted the concept album into a stage show that won five Tony Awards including Best Original Score.

With all the members of the quartet contributing compositions, this one finds the four participants on equal footing on ten adventurous originals.

BWW Review: HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH at Theatre Tulsa
by Dara Homer - Sep 16, 2018

In Hedwig and the Angry Inch, identity is stubbornly in flux, and yet the show is a testament to the beauty of living outside of and in between categories. Theatre Tulsa's production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch is a joyous celebration of living beyond boundaries and existing in a theatrical space. The show's metatheatrical frame invites the audience to participate as fans of the titular performer, and Hedwig serves as the narrator for her own story as she shifts between flashback and testimony. She is a self-proclaimed 'internationally ignored song stylist' whose compulsory sex change surgery has left her in a physical state that puts her somewhere in the middle of the gender binary. Hedwig's capacity for inhabiting the space between genders is connected to her skill in linking the onstage world with the world of the audience, and this quality of uncertainty that ultimately reveals authenticity is what makes her the ultimate storyteller.
