Ali Louis Bourzgui to Star in The Who’s Tommy Broadway Revival

It was announced today that Ali Louis Bourzgui will play Tommy in the newly reimagined Broadway production of The Who’s TOMMY opening on March 28, 2024. Preview performances will begin March 8, 2024, at the Nederlander Theatre.

Tickets to The Who’s TOMMY are now on sale via Broadway Direct, the primary ticketing provider for The Who’s TOMMY on Broadway.

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.

The new production of The Who’s TOMMY premiered this past summer at the Goodman Theatre in Chicago where Chris Jones in the Chicago Tribune said “Tommy explodes with life – it’s a truly ready-for prime-time stunner. Broadway has nothing else like this wizardry going on.”

Ali Louis Bourzgui reprises the leading role on Broadway after starring in Chicago’s Goodman Theatre for which he won Chicago’s Jeff Award for his performance this past summer. The critics also raved about his performance with the Wall Street Journal saying “Ali Louis Bourzgui sings with vibrancy and scorching earnestness,” with the Chicago Sun-Times saying that he “delivers a star-making performance defined by powerhouse vocals and a balletic grace.”

Additional casting for The Who’s TOMMY on Broadway will be announced soon.

With music and lyrics by Pete Townshend and book by Pete Townshend and Des McAnuff, The Who’s TOMMY is directed by Des McAnuff.

Myth and spectacle combine in The Who’s exhilarating 1969 rock opera, 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 a celebrity savior.
