SEPT. 14-21
    ONSTAGE: The Who's Tommy
    Since 1969, The Who’s Tommy has been striking resonant chords — first as a concept album by the legendary Rock group, then as a star-studded 1975 film and finally as a 1993 Broadway musical. That final incarnation, winner of five Tony Awards (including one for Pete Townshend’s original score and another for Wayne Cilento’s choreography) ran for more than two years. The powerful work will soon be available to Cincinnati audiences in Over-the-Rhine’s 556-seat Memorial Hall.
    Sept. 14-15 and Sept. 20-21. $28-$42. Memorial Hall, 1225 Elm St., Over-the-Rhine, memorialhallotr.com.
