The Who's Tommy (Kavii Theatre. Thousand
Oaks Civic Arts Plaza. 2100 Thousand Oaks
Blvd., [805] 583-8700; [213] 480-3232). “Di-
rector Glenn Casale delivers a virtual by-the-
numbers re-creation of the Broadway stag-
ing. although. with many of that produc-
tion’s key scenic elements missing. this
often-baffling presentation doesn't catch fire
until the second half. Still, the singers give
Pete Townshend's songs good rock 'n’ roll
treatment. and the band’s really groovy"
