About the Musical
Deprived of sight, hearing and speech by the shock of what he has witnessed as a child, young Tommy Walker seems lost to life – until he reveals an uncanny talent for the game of pinball. When his faculties are suddenly restored, Tommy is hailed as a living miracle – but will the fans who turn to him for enlightenment want to hear what he has to say?

Most suitable for ages 12 and up, but parental discretion is advised. The story deals with mature themes, including sexuality and violence, and the dialogue includes some profanity and other strong language. The production employs pyrotechnics, strobe lights, fog, haze and smoke effects. Startling sounds, including gunshots, are heard, and the show’s rock music score is played at a volume appropriate to the genre.
You May Also Want to See: Waiting for Godot, another play that deals with the human need to seek meaning and purpose in even the most extreme circumstances.
