The Who’s Tommy is across the pond as well as on your doorstep

With the second Ramps on the Moon Production, The Who’s ‘Tommy’, being produced by The New Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich, is it a bit of a coincidence that over the pond in America they are also producing the show!

The New Wolsey Theatre production begins on 30th March until 8th April 2017, before touring the other fantastic Ramps on the Moon Theatre venues.

Of course there’s will be slightly different and you would be lucky to get to see both versions…do let us know if you pop over to America though!

This article discusses not only Tommy but the backlash against non-disabled performers playing disabled characters. In 2013-2014, Christine Bruno says, “seven shows on Broadway featured prominently a character with disability — none played by actors with disabilities.”


It’s a really good read… Article
