This according to the Daily Mail:
Mods and their Vespa and Lambretta scooters will be zipping around the stage when the theatre version of The Who's Quadrophenia opens at the Theatre Royal, Plymouth, in May.
Pete Townshend is overseeing casting sessions with director Tom Critchley and casting chief Pippa Ailion.
They're after a youthful cast who can sing (of course!) to play mainly Mods, and a handul of youngsters with quiffs to play Rockers. Franc Roddam's movie version launched the film careers of Phil Daniels, Ray Winstone and Sting.
