**SUSPENDED** The iconic rock opera from The Who comes to NTC!
ALL NTC PERFORMANCES AND ACTIVITIES ARE SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
The Novato Theater Company’s fourth show of its 100th season is The Who’s Tommy:
Music and lyrics by Pete Townsend
Book by Pete Townshend & Des McAnuff
Additional music & lyrics by John Entwistle & Keith Moon
The original album has sold 20 million copies and has been inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.
The Who’s Tommy rock opera, opening on March 13 and running until April 5, is directed & choreographed by Marilyn Izdebski.
The album was mostly composed by guitarist Pete Townshend and is a rock opera that tells the story of Tommy Walker, a “deaf, dumb and blind” boy who achieves stardom as The Pinball Wizard, including his experiences with life and his relationship with his family.
Townshend eventually named the double-album story of a deaf and blind mute who grows up to be a pinball expert and spiritual leader ‘Tommy‘ as it was a common British name and the nickname of soldiers in WWI.
The Tony & Grammy Award winning show pulses with rock music of one of the greatest rock bands of our time.
