Singer Kim Wilde is back in the limelight after a long break. She appears in the new musical as the mother of Tommy, the child pretending to be deaf and dumb.
London’s Shaftesbury Theatre on the scene back in the success of the musical has received plenty of praise from critics, and has been acclaimed as one of the best productions of the London scene.
Although Kim Wilde can not get the credits for making Pete Townsend’s “rock opera”, part of the audience has come to see the rock star in this musical.
She did not disappoint her fans, as she is revealed to be just as good as an actress.
Tommy was originally released about twenty years ago by The Who. Pete Townsend has shaped a new and clearer titillating version for the Nineties.
