The Who’s Tommy
Pete Townshend’s seminal rock opera is directed and choreographed by Mindy Cooper (who was part of the 1993 Broadway version). With elaborate sets, a large cast (good acting, so-so singing) and a potent band (led by Graham Sobelman), this high-energy campus project rivals a professional show in many ways. Th-Sa 8pm; Su 2pm. Through 5/29. $15-$22. UC Davis Department of Theatre & Dance, Main Theatre in Wright Hall; (530) 754-2787; www.mondaviarts.org.
