While preparing for TOMMY, I hear people ask “What is this play about?!” To answer that question fully, I would have to write a thesis. In 1994, Ken Russell said that he felt it was about enlightenment and that we’re all deaf, dumb, and blind until we experience a tragedy. Ultimately, however, TOMMY is about forgiveness. It is about the journey each of us takes to adulthood. It is about family and everything that goes into that one simple word.
