Exit Seven Players will be bringing a fully staged production of The Who’s Tommy to Western Massachusetts October 22-31, 2021.
Based on the iconic 1969 rock concept album, The Who’s Tommy is an exhilarating story of hope, healing and the human spirit. The pinball-playing, deaf, dumb and blind boy who triumphs over his adversities has inspired, amazed and puzzled audiences for more than 50 years. The story is so compelling that it was produced as a world-touring ballet, an over-the-top 1970’s movie, and finally brought to Broadway as a brilliant, dramatic musical theater re-imagination. This five-time Tony Award-winning musical version was translated to the stage by theatrical wizard Des McAnuff into a high-energy, one-of-a-kind theatrical event. With a live rock band on stage, outstanding regional talent, inventive staging, costuming, and choreography driving the non-stop action, Exit Seven’s performance of The Who’s Tommy is not to be missed.
Directed by Michael O. Budnick
