    'David Byrne’s American Utopia' to Play Broadway’s St. James Theatre From September 17 with Full Original Band
    Matthew Murphy

    David Byrne’s American Utopia will return to Broadway this fall at the St. James Theatre, 246 West 44th Street, in New York City. As previously announced, performances will begin Friday, September 17, 2021. The highly acclaimed production features David Byrne with returning band members Jacquelene Acevedo, Gustavo Di Dalva, Daniel Freedman, Chris Giarmo, Tim Keiper, Tendayi Kuumba, Karl Mansfield, Mauro Refosco, Stéphane San Juan, Angie Swan, and Bobby Wooten III.

    Tickets are on sale now at americanutopiabroadway.com. All ticketholders with valid prior bookings have been e-mailed with their performance information. Ticketholders may contact their point of booking with any questions or requests.

    David Byrne said, “It is with great pleasure that finally, after a year+ like no other, I can announce that our show is coming back to Broadway. 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.”

    Like the rest of the theater community, the American Utopia team continues to closely follow the COVID-19 health and safety guidance of New York City, New York State, and the CDC. As public health conditions and guidance evolves, American Utopia will always follow the most current guidelines to ensure the safety of all musicians, production staff, theatre employees, and audience members.

    Nonesuch Records released both the original 2018 American Utopia album, which inspired the Broadway show, as well as the cast album for David Byrne’s American Utopia, with music and lyrics by David Byrne.

    Composer, singer, and instrumental polymath Ben LaMar Gay's new album, Open Arms to Open Us, is due November 19 on International Anthem / Nonesuch Records. Living up to NPR's claim that "there is no one universe for Ben LaMar Gay, he just sonic booms from one sound to another," he interweaves jazz, blues, ballads, R&B, raga, new music, nursery rhyme, Tropicália, two-step, hip-hop, and beyond in his most colorful and communicable work yet, an expression of his signature omni-genre, "Pan-Americana" brew. You can watch the video for the track "Sometimes I Forget How Summer Looks on You," featuring OHMME, here.
