By Lulu Diamond

The 2024 revival of The Who’s Tommy, directed by Des McAnuff, is a triumphant return to the Broadway stage.

Pete Townshend’s multifaceted talent shines through with his stellar book, music, and lyrics still intact. David Korins’ set design creates a visually captivating world, complemented by Sarafina Bush’s imaginative costume design. Amanda Zieve’s lighting design electrifies the stage, while Gareth Owen’s sound design amplifies the iconic music of The Who throughout the booming Nederlander Theatre. Lorin Latarro’s fresh choreography adds a dynamic twist to this classic tale. 

Ali Louis Bourzgui’s Broadway debut as Tommy Walker is nothing short of sensational, marking him as a rising star in the theatrical world. 

This production delivers a thrilling experience, blending nostalgia with innovation, making it a must-see for both fans and newcomers alike.
