David Bryne’s American Utopia has announced that it will return to Broadway for another engagement beginning in September of 2020. The new engagement will last 17 weeks.
Their current engagement – which is held at the Hudson Theatre in New York, N.Y. – concluded on Sunday, Feb. 16. However, with this new engagement announcement, fans who missed out on the first time around will be able to see the show this coming fall.
“It’s become obvious to us in the band, the crew and the producer team that audiences want, dare I say need? To see this show,” said Byrne in a press release. “They’re not ready to have it disappear just yet. We feel the same way, we love doing this show. So, it’s thrilling to us that we can announce that we’ll be back in September. Tickets are on sale now.”
In the same release, the producers said, “It has been a joy to bring American Utopia to Broadway. David Byrne is one of our greatest living artists and it’s cause for celebration that he has made his Broadway debut with this brilliant production. We have been blown away by the range of audiences of all ages and backgrounds who have come to see American Utopia.”
If you are unable to make it to New York City, fear not: it was also recently announced that acclaimed filmmaker Spike Lee will direct a filmed version of American Utopia. In addition, Byrne is set to appear as the musical guest on Saturday Night Live on Feb. 29.
