Storyboard Text

  • TOMMY: The World's First Rock Opera
  • Tommy was the first rock opera.  It was written about a blind, deaf, and dumb boy.
  • After seeing his step-father brutally murdered by his father, his mother convinced him that he neither saw nor heard the event and as a result, fell blind, deaf, and dumb.
  • I'll fiddle about
  • Both Tommy's Uncle Earnie  and Cousin Kevin take advantage of Tommy not being able to see, hear, or get away and they sexually assaulted Tommy.
  • Tommy's mother tried every method she could to get him to see again, from giving him LSD to going to special doctors.
  • After giving Tommy acid doesn't work, a doctor says that Tommy is psychosomatically blind and deaf.  He asks Tommy to look in the mirror and they realize that he can see his reflection.
  • When Tommy's mother hears this, she smashes the mirror because she was angry and this broke the cycle, allowing Tommy to see and hear again.
