The Who’s TOMMY earned a 2024 Tony Award nomination for Best Revival of a Musical, an Outer Critics Circle Award nomination for Outstanding Revival of a Musical, and a Drama League Award nomination for Outstanding Revival of a Musical.

Three decades after the epic pop-culture musical theatre sensation first bowed on Broadway, original Tony Award®-winning creators Pete Townshend (music, lyrics, book) and Des McAnuff (book, direction) have reunited to bring the story of Tommy Walker to today’s audiences.

“Thunderous and thoroughly intoxicating…" raves The Wall Street Journal. "Unlike most grand operas, The Who’s TOMMY ends on a note of uplift, with Tommy leading the cast in a soaring, almost hymn-like song – at which point I found myself unable to resist theuplift, and rose almost unwillingly from my seat.”

Entertainment Weekly says "“See it, Feel it. You won’t forget it!"

Myth and spectacle combine in The Who’s exhilarating 1969 rock opera, The Who’s TOMMY — including the unforgettable anthems “I’m Free,” “See Me, Feel Me,” “Sensation” and “Pinball Wizard.” After witnessing his father shoot his rival, the young Tommy Walker is lost in the universe, endlessly and obsessively staring into the mirror. An innate knack for pinball catapults him from reticent adolescent to celebrity savior. 

The cast of The Who’s TOMMY features Ali Louis Bourzgui as Tommy, Alison Luff as Mrs. Walker, Adam Jacobs as Captain Walker, John Ambrosino as Uncle Ernie, Bobby Conte as Cousin Kevin, and Christina Sajous as The Acid Queen.
