  Review Round-Up

LA Weekly - Not Recommended

"...A successful revival of a classic or seminal work of theater depends on one of two things: Either the original is faithfully replicated with flawless execution, or the original is innovatively reinterpreted to shed new light on the source material. When neither of these is true, the production becomes an also-ran in the litany of remounts all classics endure, which is sadly the case here."

Neon Tommy - Not Recommended

"...“Tommy, can you hear me?” The answer is no, Tommy can’t hear you, and neither can anyone else at DOMA Theatre Company’s production of “The Who’s Tommy,” where poor sound design is just one of the show’s many flaws."

MadTheatrics - Somewhat Recommended

"...The music is clearly DOMA’s first concern, and by and large, the onstage talent rocks the house. It is unfortunate that the direction and design work does not keep the tempo."
