The Who's Tommy
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 was translated to the stage by theatrical wizard, Des McAnuff, into a high-energy, one-of-a-kind theatrical event. After witnessing the accidental murder of his mother's lover by his father, Tommy is traumatized into catatonia and, as the boy grows, he suffers abuse at the hands of his sadistic relatives and neighbors. As an adolescent, he's discovered to have an uncanny knack for playing pinball and, when his mother finally breaks through his catatonia, he becomes an international pinball superstar. The Who's Tommy features an exhilarating score that is timeless in its youthful appeal, giving the show a cross-generational appeal that has made it a smash-hit.

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
One of the most enduring shows of all time, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is a reimagining of the Biblical story of Joseph, his father Jacob, eleven brothers and the coat of many colors. Told entirely through song with the help of a main character Narrator, the musical follows preferred son Joseph. After being sold into slavery by his brothers, he ingratiates himself with Egyptian noble Potiphar, but ends up in jail after refusing the amorous advances of Potiphars wife. While imprisoned, Joseph discovers his ability to interpret dreams, and he soon finds himself in front of the mighty but troubled, Elvis-inspired, Pharaoh. Josephs solution to Egypts famine elevates him to Pharaohs right hand man and reunites him with his family. The magical musical is full of catchy songs in a variety of styles, from a parody of French ballads (Those Canaan Days), to country-western (One More Angel in Heaven) and calypso (Benjamin Calypso), along with the unforgettable classics Any Dream Will Do and Close Every Door. Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat was first written by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber at the request of a friend of Andrews father, Colet Court School choirmaster Alan Doggett, for the schools 1968 end of term concert. The childrens concert proved so successful that the piece, originally 15-minutes long, continued to expand until it became a full-length professional musical. The first amateur production in America was in May 1970 at the College of the Immaculate Conception in Douglastown, New York. Professionally, Joseph premiered at Scotlands Edinburgh Festival in 1972, and transferred to the West Ends Albery Theatre the following year. The Broadway opening, with the late Laurie Beechman as the first female to take the Narrator role, was in 1982 and garnered six Tony nods, including Best Musical. The title role has been played by a succession of stars including Gary Bond, Donny Osmond, Patrick Cassidy and Jason Donovan. It has been staged numerous times in the decades since; a new production recently toured the U.S., directed and choreographed by Hamilton Tony winner Andy Blankenbuehler.
