“Musicals” the Boxer saied. From all things … musicals.
I am not into musicals. “Musical” brings back memories of rainy Sunday afternoons watching strange singing people on the b/w tv, girls in rows throwing legs, all a bit military “style”. A plot nobody understood, the whole thing badly synchronized. I am no friend of opera or operetta, especially the Vienna humbtatta makes me cringe and wince, I am simply spoiled for this.
But there is “Tommy“.
Tommy becomes deaf, blind and dumb. Several cures are tried (Acid Queen) by his desparate parents, even a miracle-healing. The healing is in himself, he has to brake the mirror.
That is the general storyline, some changes were made from the original album (1969), to the film (1975) and the musical of 1993 (link above).
In the “Church of Marilyn” people gather and hope for a miracle. Reverend Eric tells what has to be told … she gives “Eyesight to the Blind”!
There‘s a later version, no ScaMarilyn included.
