Riveting, Must see, Masterful, Great singing, Great staging

See it if This revival is an absolute knockout! Be ready to be blown away by an absolutely extraordinary production. Every detail superb. Strong cast!

Don't see it if You do not want to experience the full force of this revival. It rocks the Nederlander! Acid Queen was the weak link but thoroughly enjoyed.

Must see, Masterful, Great singing, Great staging, Great acting

See it if You love the Who’s music Tommy. Great book. Staging & choreography are brilliant. Live music on stage at times. Dazzled by design & sound

Don't see it if Don’t like The Who’s music or the movie Tommy. Music is loud so if that bothers you stay home Read more
