Rock royalty visits Festival

Stratford Gazette

Musical icon Pete Townshend made a special stop in Stratford Wednesday to visit with the cast and crew of the Stratford Festival’s production of Tommy and to take in an evening preview of the famous rock musical at the Avon Theatre.

Townshend, of course, wrote the music and lyrics for the play, which was inspired by The Who’s 1969 concept album of the same name.

Tommy is directed by former Festival artistic director Des McAnuff, who previously won a Tony Award for directing the musical in 1993.

The play opens May 30.
