David Byrne's American Utopia

Former Talking Heads frontman David Byrne is bringing his American Utopia show to Broadway! The production, named after Byrne’s 11th studio album American Utopia, features Byrne and his band untethered on stage as they perform songs from his solo career and tracks from his time with the Talking Heads. “Because of how theatrical the show is, others started telling me, ‘This needs to go to Broadway,’” Byrne shared in a post on his website. “Parked in a beautiful Broadway theater, we can perfect the sound, the lights, the movement -- we don’t have to adapt to a new place every night! It was an exciting challenge.” Before taking up residency on Broadway, American Utopia will be presented for 18 nights at Boston’s Emerson Colonial Theatre. “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,” Byrne wrote. “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. I had this vision of how exciting that would be -- both for me and for an audience.”
