Kansas City, MO – The MTH Theater at Crown Center is pleased to announce the cast of THE WHO’S TOMMY, its second MainStage musical of the season.

Based on the iconic 1969 rock concept album, The Who’s Tommy is an exhilarating story of hope, healing and the human spirit. The story of the pinball-playing, deaf, dumb and blind boy who triumphs over his adversities has inspired, amazed and puzzled audiences for more than 40 years. This five-time Tony Award-winning musical (including the Tony Award for “Best Original Score”) is an exhilarating, one-of-a-kind theatrical event that features some of the most incredible songs of a generation, including Pinball Wizard, Sensation, Acid Queen, I’m Free, I Believe My Own Eyes, and many more.
