Principal casting has been announced for the Broadway revival of The Who’s TOMMY, which is set to begin previews at the Nederlander Theatre March 8 ahead of an official opening night March 28.
A slew of actors from the Goodman Theatre run are following the show to Broadway, including 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. They join previously announced Ali Louis Bourzgui, who stars as Tommy Walker.
A staging of The Who’s 1969 rock opera, The Who’s TOMMY features songs like “Pinball Wizard,” “See Me, Feel Me,” and “I’m Free.” This new production is described as follows: “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.”
