David Fusco stars as the wicked “Uncle Ernie” in “The Who’s Tommy” presented by the Off Broad Street Players at the Levoy Theatre.

David J. Fusco, of Willingboro (originally of Bridgeton), is “excited to make his debut on the Levoy stage with an immensely talented cast and crew!” David previously appeared in OBSP’s production of The Secret Garden in 2001 as the roles of “Fakir/Weatherstaff.”

Other favorite past productions for David include Sweeney Todd: the Demon Barber of Fleet Street (Adolpho Pirelli), Ragtime (Henry Ford), Guys and Dolls (Nicely Nicely Johnson), and most recently, the Haddonfield Plays and Players production of Parade (Ensemble).

When he is not on stage, Dave works as the Assistant Director of Residential Services at Eden Autism, based in Princeton. His work with adults with disabilities gives him an appreciation for the main character in the show, Tommy.  He elaborates , saying, “Often times, an individual’s skills, talents, strengths, and preferences are overlooked if they are unable to communicate traditionally. I’ve seen so many cases where exposure to art, music, or any vocational skill can turn on a light bulb, the same way that pinball turns on Tommy’s lightbulb.”

David has loved the music and story of Tommy since his mom bought him the Tommy Original cast album 23 years ago. He says, “The music is wonderful; alternating between hard-nosed, in-your-face rock, and melodic passages. Then, the one changes again whenever Uncle Ernie sings to something COMPLETELY different.”

To see David Fusco’s take on the wicked “Uncle Ernie,” you’ll have to catch OBSP’s exciting production of The Who’s Tommy, opening at the Levoy Theatre on February 10 and running through February 19.
