Starting Friday, Sept. 17, David Byrne will reprise his hit Broadway show American Utopia on Broadway.
“It is with great pleasure that finally, after a year+ like no other, I can announce that our show is coming back to Broadway,” Byrne said via press release. “You who kept the faith, who held on to your tickets, well, you knew this would happen eventually! September 17 – remount previews begin. We’re moving to the St. James Theatre – just down 44th Street from the Hudson, where we were before. The stage is a little wider and the capacity is a little bigger – I guess we did alright! Seriously, New York is back, and given all we’ve witnessed, felt and experienced, it is obvious to me that no one wants to go back to a world with EVERYTHING the way it was – we have an opportunity for a new world here. See you there.”
In October 2020, HBO released David Byrne’s American Utopia, a film by Spike Lee chronicling the show.
The show’s original inspiration was Byrne’s 2018 album of the same name.
Tickets are available now via AmericanUtopiaBroadway.com.
