BLT's "Tommy" opens this weekend.

Burien Little Theatre, Tommy poster

Tomorrow is opening night of Burien Little Theatre's production of "The Who's Tommy," the musical work written by Pete Townsend which first appeared as a Who album in 1969 and was expanded, seven years later, into a film by Ken Russell. "Tommy" was first in the lineage of "rock operas," and like Pink Floyd's "The Wall," it also addresses themes of British post-war disillusionment, staged in a hallucinatory fearful post-war Britain where young boys are not safe from abuse from authority figures.
