    Watch: David Byrne Reflects on Importance of Social Gatherings on 'CBS Sunday Morning'
    CBS

    David Byrne was on CBS Sunday Morning today to share his thoughts on the importance of collective rituals like concerts and theatre, which have been curtailed during the pandemic, and how their return is an important part of healing. "Becoming part of a larger group than just 'I' is a wonderful experience," Byrne says. "Now, we're beginning to recapture that experience, that part of ourselves again. The feeling of becoming whole again is ecstatic." You can watch his commentary below.

    David Byrne's American Utopia, which recently returned to the Broadway stage at the St. James Theatre, will receive a Special Tony Award at the Tony Awards ceremony hosted by Audra McDonald on Paramount+ tonight, after which Byrne and the cast will perform on The Tony Awards Present Broadway's Back! on CBS.

    The cast album for the critically acclaimed Broadway production of David Byrne’s American Utopia includes songs from his 2018 album, American Utopia, along with music from Talking Heads and Byrne’s solo career. Byrne shares the spotlight with a diverse ensemble of eleven musical artists from around the globe for an event that delivers "an experience unlike anything else," says Billboard. "Dazzling, rapturous and jubilant," exclaims the New York Times. "Astonishing," raves Hollywood Reporter. "A knockout celebration of music, dance and song. Pure bliss." Rolling Stone calls it "a tonic for our tumultuous times."

    "Laurie Anderson Has a Message for Us Humans," Sam Anderson's New York Times Magazine feature on Laurie Anderson in last week's issue of the magazine, is today's episode of The Sunday Read from the Times podcast The Daily. Before reading his article, the writer conveys five questions Laurie Anderson had shared with him, "a sort of test that uses to figure out whether a piece that she's working on is good or not ... 'Is it complicated enough? Is it simple enough? Is it crazy enough? Is it beautiful enough? And finally, Is it stupid enough?' And I thought that was kind of a great criteria for proceeding with life, with whatever you are doing."
