Bach + Beethoven + Britney = Tom
Tom needs to tell you something. But, he’s not very good with words so he’s going to play some music for you. Then he hopes that you’ll finally understand.
A play about obsession and classical music. For classical music lovers and for people who don’t know they love it yet.
