  Do you think that PT put Tommy on Broadway only for the benefit
  of WHO fans ?  How can you NOT expect common on-lookers or the 
  people out on the town to show up ? 

  Come on, this is a Broadway show, not THE WHO live, what did you
  expect to do ? Hold up a lighter for an encore ???

Its been out for almost 2 years. There are more people going now than there
are remaining WHO fans that haven't attended yet...
