Our friends at Burien Little Theatre are introducing a new ticket deal for the electrifying rock opera ‘The Who’s Tommy’ – any audience member who wears green on St. Patrick’s Day (March 17), will get $3 off the price of his/her ticket to that performance.
It’s enough to turn even the luckiest Lucky Charms mascot a shade of unnatural, synthetic green.
The green apparel must be visible (underwear doesn’t count) and the discount is available at the door only. This deal can be used in conjunction with other discounts except the Dinner and Show Package, Fabulous Four-Packs or season tickets.
Written by Pete Townshend and Des McAnuff, The Who’s Tommy will rock Burien Little Theatre through March 25 with such legendary hits as Pinball Wizard and See Me, Feel Me. The show features a live rock band backing singing and dancing actors, video and a set painted to look like the inside of the Tommy pinball machine.
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.
Music and lyrics for The Who’s Tommy were written by Pete Townshend, the book was written by Pete Townshend and Des McAnuff, and additional music and lyrics were written by John Entwistle and Keith Moon. The Who’s Tommy was originally produced on Broadway by Pace Theatrical Group and Dodger Productions with Kardana Productions.
