Live performance of Pinball Wizard and hits from
The Who’s Tommy will rock Seattle Pinball Museum March 11
(February 29, 2012 – Burien, WA) – A live performance of Pinball Wizard and other legendary hits from the electrifying rock opera The Who’s Tommy will rock the Seattle Pinball Museum on Sunday, March 11 at about 6 p.m.
The songs will be performed by the stars of The Who’s Tommy, currently running at Burien Little Theatre through March 25. Written by Pete Townshend and Des McAnuff, the show features a live rock band backing singing and dancing actors, video and a set painted to look like the inside of the original Tommy pinball game.
The Who’s Tommy explores rebellion, finding yourself, and the perils of celebrity. Childhood trauma renders Tommy Walker deaf, mute and blind. He finds solace through his uncanny pinball prowess, becoming a pinball superstar and messianic hero.
