The Who’s ‘amazing journey’ begins at the Delray Beach Center for the Arts’ Crest Theatre on October 17th.
Rehearsal’s for Entr’Acte Theatrix upcoming production of The Who’s Tommy are well underway, but the cast recently took a ‘time out’ for a quick photo session. All three Tommy’s were present, along with The Acid Queen, Captain and Mrs. Walker, Sally Simpson, Cousin Kevin, and Uncle Ernie.
The Who’s Tommy will run from October 17th through October 27th at the Delray Beach Center for the Arts’ Crest Theatre in Old School Square.
Entr’Acte’s recent production of Monty Python’s Spamalot was a near sell-out, and ticket sales indicate that Tommy will attract similar crowds.
Pete Townshend and Des McAnuff’s Tony Award-winning musical about a young boy who discovers a natural knack for pinball was one of the very first rock operas to play on Broadway, and opened the door to a new era of musical theatre. Tommy is currently enjoying an extremely successful revival at the Stratford Festival in Stratford, Ontario, Canada.
Entr’Acte’s cast members include Alexander Zenoz as Tommy, Alexa Baray as Mrs. Walker, Sean Dorazio as Captain Walker, Ashley Gravelin as the Acid Queen, Greg Halmos as Cousin Kevin, and David Lamphier as Uncle Ernie.
