Review of "The Christmas Carol Rag" at BAT

Every year the holiday season brings out some of our favorite traditions in song and story, and this one is no different.

BLT's "Tommy" opens this weekend.

Tomorrow is opening night of Burien Little Theatre's production of "The Who's Tommy," the musical work written by Pete Townsend which first appeared as a Who album in 1969 and was expanded, seven years later, into a film by Ken Russell. "Tommy" was first in the lineage of "rock operas," and like Pink Floyd's "The Wall," it also addresses themes of British post-war disillusionment, staged in a hallucinatory fearful post-war Britain where young boys are not safe from abuse from authority figures.
