DAVID BYRNE: American Utopia Plays Broadway This Fall
After a sold-out, year-long international tour, David Byrne’s American Utopia will begin a three-and-a-half-month Broadway run at the Hudson Theatre October 4th.
The former Talking Heads frontman explains, "As I was recording the songs for my American Utopia album, it occurred to me that they would be exciting to play live -- and I realized that a lot of my older material would fit right in… I imagined a live show… I pictured a lot of drummers, a kind of drum line/samba school/second line, that would create the rhythms... Because of how theatrical the show is, others started telling me, ‘This needs to go to Broadway.’ Why not?"
The theatrical concert played more than 150 dates in 27 countries during 2018.
Before heading to New York, the production will play Boston's Emerson Colonial Theatre from September 11th through the 28th
