    A two-week production of The Who's Tommy will be presented at the Ricardo Montalban Theatre in Hollywood in June.

    Directed by Brian Purcell, the production will play the California venue June 18-29. The starry cast will boast Beauty and the Beast's Susan Egan as Mrs. Walker, Haylie Duff (Hairspray, "Napoleon Dynamite," "7th Heaven") as Sally Simpson and famed singer Nona Hendrix ("The L-Word") as the Acid Queen. Additional casting will be announced at a later date.

    The creative team will also include musical director Dan Redfeld and choreographer Denise Leitner.
    Director Purcell, according to press notes, "has come up with a radical new theatrical treatment for Tommy, one of the seminal works of the rock era. The concept is to create a new and visceral aural environment, designed especially for the Ricardo Montalbán theatre."

    In a statement Purcell said, "We envision a Tommy that takes place inside of Tommy's own head and to track his experience of his story. This gives us an entirely new canvas to present this work, which has meant so much to the three generations that have come up since the album's original release.
