“EXTRAORDINARY! A TRULY READY-FOR PRIME-TIME STUNNER!”
Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune

“A DAZZLING, PULSING ROLLER COASTER OF A SHOW THAT OVERWHELMS THE SENSES!”
Chicago Sun-Times

WATCH ME

In 1969, The Who created a rock opera that changed the course of music history.

Some 25 years later, The Who’s TOMMY arrived on Broadway, winning 5 Tony Awards® and pushing the boundaries of what musical theatre can be. This March, the Amazing Journey arrives in a dazzling new production direct from a sold-out, record-breaking, award-winning Chicago premiere.

“Broadway has nothing else like this wizardry going on, not this season and nothing I know of for next season. Visually and sonically overwhelming, it’s a prescient masterpiece of a rock opera.”
Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune
