The Who’s TOMMY Revival to Open on Broadway in Spring 2024

The Who’s TOMMY is making its way back to Broadway! It was announced today that the critically acclaimed production of The Who’s TOMMY that premiered at Chicago’s Goodman Theatre earlier this year will open on Broadway at the Nederlander Theatre in the spring of 2024.

“It is an honor and privilege to bring TOMMY to New York”, said producers Stephen Gabriel and Ira Pittelman. “We’re looking forward to sharing this unique new production with the countless fans who have loved TOMMY through the years and to introducing the iconic rock opera to the next generation of theatergoers.”

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.

Following a critically acclaimed, award-winning, run at Chicago’s Goodman Theatre (where it was the highest grossing production in the history of the Goodman), The Who’s TOMMY will begin preview performances on March 8, 2024, ahead of officially opening on March 28, 2024, at the Nederlander Theatre.

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.
