Seacoast Repertory Theatre’s version of “The Who’s Tommy” delivers all the bells and whistles you could want, plus a knockout twist —a living arcade.
“We wanted the whole show to feel like an immersive pinball machine. So the bells and buzzers and lights and flickers on the set — the cast bounces off of them, and jump on trampolines,”
“There are a lot of special effects and technical aspects to the set, the props, the costumes, the lighting. (The set is) a little dangerous, which is also kind of sexy for us,” James said. “The ‘cirque’ feel of it is something that we’re presenting as part of the package.”
