  1. I need to get back to NY! Jeremy was my first Tommy. I only got to see him once in Chicago, but his portrayal was one I never forgot. He is amazing — just the right combination of swagger and insecurity.

  5. Great show. Less of the F word would have made it even better, especially with so many children in the audience. I bet the Broadway show and even the London one were not so full of profanities as the Oz version. Back in the era of the group the F word would certainly not have been used as much as in the show.
