Jul. 19-Aug. 11: The Who’s Tommy
You can start your weekend on a musical note with two productions that open today. Port Tobacco Players in La Plata, Md. present The Who’s Tommy through August 11. The epic rock opera tells the story of a young boy, struck “deaf, dumb and blind,” who later grows up to become a "Pinball Wizard.” Written by Pete Townshend and Des McAnuff, the play takes audiences on a journey through tragedy, triumph and redemption.
Jul. 19-Aug. 17: I Do! I Do!
The American Century Theater gives the 1960s musical I Do! I Do! a modern twist in a unique production, conceived and directed by Jack Marshall. The play follows one couple through 50 years of marriage as they handle the highs and lows of their relationship. In this reimagined version, “Michael” and “Agnes” become “Leslie” and “Chris” as four actors interchangeably portray the two main characters in same-sex and heterosexual unions. You can see the show through August 17 at Gunston Performing Arts Center’s Theatre II in Arlington.
Music: “Overture” by The Who
