A live performance of ‘Pinball Wizard’ and other legendary hits from Burien Little Theatre’s 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 production, currently running at BLT 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.
