I have a question unrelated to this week's pick.

I found out Roger Daltrey is touring and performing Tommy. He's coming to Philadelphia in a couple weeks. I've never listened to the original record. Is it weird to hear a "rock opera" with various characters but all performed by the same one or two singers? It seems like I would have trouble distinguishing whoever is supposed to be speaking at the time. "You Never Heard It" would be one example.
Mary Lane: (singing)"We are just like Romeo and Juliet. We're happy, young and <hacking cough> hemorrhaging blood."

Offscreen critic: "What was that s**t with the window?"

A very good question. Does Daltrey really perform 'Fiddle About' in concert? I can't imagine how that would go over.

Vandergelder: "It takes a woman all powdered and pink to joyously clean out the drain in the sink!" I doubt this will work out the way you're hoping, Hello, Dolly!

Hello from the other side (of the world)... Again I feel bad for being so off the grid for so long but I want to try and change that... I saw La La Land when it came out and I remember I liked it back then, Although I haven't seen it since and I still think Whiplash is a better movie I want to see if La La Land "holds up" or is really "Selfish White People problems: The Movie"

Looking forward to discussing this with you guys 😊
