Tommy; an explosion of music and dance.

the story begins just before the second world war. Under the guidance of swinging music (a great Orchestra) you get the history summarized: the encounter and the marriage of Captain Walker and Mrs. Walker. However, Captain Walker is captured by the Germans. Mrs. Walker, pregnant with a son (Tommy) is sad and thinks only to stay. Years pass and we see Mrs. Walker with her son and her new lover. After Tommy is brought to bed, something happens what will change everything. Captain Walker is back and upon returning home he scares of the \ ‘ \ ‘ intruder. What follows is a battle and Captain Walker shoot down the lover, in self-defense. Small Tommy sees this drama happen in the reflection of the mirror. Captain and Mrs. Walker say their child quickly: ” You didn’t won’t hear it, you didn’t won’t see it, you won’t say nothing to no one ever in your life… ” . After these words seems Tommy completely self-absorbed. Tommy is from that moment on, mute and blind. Captain Walker is acquitted of the murder, but Tommy is traumatized and seems to be in an autistic condition. Then follows a long way to healing and we see Tommy growing up. Deaf, dumb, and blind, but it\ ‘s still thoughts \ ‘ (in the form of an adult Tommy) sings occasionally tormented about his soul. The only thing Tommy seems interested and where he great is good at, is Pinball. Soon he’s the Pinnballwizard (hit by Elton John) and from that moment the musical gets another turn. Because the music is in English and not translated to Dutch, I find it a nice listening and the songs not \ ‘ \ ‘, which often raped-in my opinion-in the case of Dutch-language versions. The storyline is something vague but sometimes because the music captivates, bothers me not. Also particularly was the deaf rendition of the rock opera by Talking Hands. A beautiful initiative, especially as this is also so into the story line.

Here I thought though: Oh, jee that is lines. Initially we would wear a long coat, but later figured out it would be more fun to play without jacket. I wore the parcel so often with exercise, the crazy is there then quickly away from it. At the first performance I had not even looked exposed by that I look so busy are you with dressing up.
