Deaf, dumb and blind, the English lad named Tommy would seem to be an unpromising hero for a noisy rock opera. But as the Who's 1969 album "Tommy" and its 1993 transformation into a Broadway musical proved, this alienated boy's journey through post-World War II life has never stopped scoring with disaffected youth.A touring production of "Tommy" visited the Morris A. Mechanic Theatre last year, and now Towson University's Maryland Arts Festival is doing the show.If the Mechanic mounting came off as a cold and chaotic spectacle, the Towson take on "Tommy" is more focused on the central family trauma.
