Joining the previously announced Ali Louis Bourzgui in the title role are 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. All six actors reprise their roles from the pre-Broadway run of Tommy at Chicago’s Goodman Theatre in 2023.

Des McAnuff and The Who’s Pete Townshend created Tommy based on The Who’s same-named concept album about a young boy, catatonic from trauma, who finds local fame as a pinball star. McAnuff, who directed the original production in 1993, returns for the revival.

The Who’s Tommy won five Tony Awards, including Best Original Score, and features songs like “Pinball Wizard,” “I’m Free,” and “We’re Not Gonna Take It.”
