N.J.- Attention "Who" fans. It's time to celebrate
rock and roll history with The Reock & Roll Revue.
This popular New Jersey band performs the classic rock
opera "Quadrophenia" for two performances

Performances take place Saturday, March 19 at 7:30 p.m. and
Sunday, March 20 at 2 p.m. Kelsey Theatre is located on MCCC's

Known as one of the greatest rock operas of all time, "Quadrophenia"
is the sixth studio album by the renowned English rock band,
The Who. Released in 1973, this double album was The
Who's second rock opera, following the hugely popular
Tommy (1969). Set in London and Brighton in 1964 and
1965, "Quadrophenia" captures the social, musical
and psychological upheaval of a turbulent and carefree era
from the perspective of an English teen.
