Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Musical librettos just keep getting bigger and more expensive. The last few Lloyd Webber opuses have been extraordinarily padded with press-agent prose and murky production stills and in price. The theatrical expansion of the Who's late-1960s rock opera about a traumatized, apparently "deaf, dumb, and blind kid" who yet becomes a "Pinball Wizard" sees the Lloyd Webbers and raises them. The pictures are profuser and clearer; there are swatches of prose fore, twixt, and aft Tommy's three acts that are not mere puffery; the layout is of artbook quality; and look at that price tag. In addition to better, there's more: rehearsal stills and little half-page remarks by the director, the dramaturge, a cast member, etc.; and a CD-in-pasted-pocket of composer Townshend singing the one song new to the stage production. It's a pretty snazzy package that, face it, no musical theater collection should be without. Ray Olson

My copy was ruined when my basement flooded. I was looking for a good replacement copy at a decent price, not $49.95, or whatever it was when it was first released. This was a really good deal, and the book was in excellent shape, including even the CD single found inside the front cover.

The book was described as in very good shape with sticker residue on the back cover. It came exactly as described, and the sticker residue isn't a bother at all. I couldn't be more pleased.

Although not currently in print, this is a must find for "Tommy" fans. Like the broadway soundtrak CD, it transports you to the magic behind the memory of a great broadway musical.

The book was awesome....more than I hoped for. I am going to see the plan and wanted to know what the musical "Tommy" was all about. It not only gave a description of each scene, but had the lyrics to the songs! What a wonderful surprise and I got it in plenty of time to look it over.

I didn't realize that it was a full on hard cover book! Beautiful coloring, and photographs throughout the entire book of the original production. Not only does it contain the full libretto, but a ton of background information interviews, etc. A hidden gem to be honest, felt it was worth a lot more than I purchased it for!

I came out of the Stratford Festival performance of "Tommy" in a state of shock - I was blown away. I immediately went into the Festival Store to buy a copy of the rock opera. All they had was the book of the music and librettos. I wanted to know how much of what happened on the stage was already written and how much was developed in rehearsal, so I went to Amazon and found Tommy:The Musical by Pete Townsend and ordered it. It gave me all of the staging information and background information that I wanted and more. Thank you
