Tommy the Musical and the Nederlander Theater


Tommy, the rock opera, was originally an album released in 1969.  The rock opera was developed into other media, including a Seattle Opera production in 1971, an orchestral version by Lou Reizner in 1972, a film in 1975, and a Broadway musical in 1992.  The show I saw today was nominated for a Tony as Best Revival of a Musical.

The story of Tommy can be read in the Wikipedia entry.  After the show Lee and I went to dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe.
