David Byrne’s American Utopia Announces Final Extension, Closing Date Set

You have limited time left to catch this music legend on Broadway. David Byrne’s American Utopia has extended its Broadway run for the final time and will conclude performances on Sunday, April 3, 2022, at the St. James Theatre.

A jubilant celebration of live music, community, and connection, the celebrated production features David Byrne with original 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. The company standbys are Renée Albulario, Alena Ciera, Chris Eddleton, Evan Frierson, Abe Nouri, and Natalie Tenenbaum.

American Utopia returned to Broadway on Friday, September 17, 2021, following its original 2019 smash-hit Broadway engagement at the Hudson Theatre and the 18-month pandemic shutdown. The show was honored with a Special Tony Award in September 2021 and persevered through the December 2021 COVID surge with unprecedented “unchained” performances.

In American Utopia, Talking Heads superstar David Byrne is joined by 11 diverse musicians from around the globe in a “knockout theatrical concert, honoring the pleasures of music, dance and song as collective celebration” (The Hollywood Reporter). Featuring “altogether astonishing choreography by Annie-B Parson” (The New York Times), with Tony-nominated Alex Timbers (director of Moulin Rouge!) serving as production consultant, it’s “an artistically stunning tour de force” (Variety) brimming with “total, buoyant joy” (New York Magazine). Christine Amanpour said, “It’s all about hope and connection between people. And it rocks.”
