American Utopia 2020 on Broadway Background
American Utopia is “Rock and Roll Hall of Famer” David Byrne’s 2018 album and show of the same name. The 2020 production is the second time around for the show that originally came to Broadway in mid-2019. That show beat all the Broadway analyst’s ticket sales expectations by over 40%. The first production of the show became the #1 grossing show for the Hudson theatre by a huge margin. When the theatre’s landlord, the Ambassador Theatre Group, realized how impactful the show really was to Byrne’s fans and how successful the show could be in the future, they asked Byrne and the rest of his team to come back to perform it again. This action by the Ambassador Theatre Group, of asking Byrne and his team to return to perform the show again, was unprecedented on the Great White Way. There is a seven month time gap between the two productions and the shows ticket sales momentum continues to deliver.
David Byrne, is a Grammy, Oscar, and Golden Globe winner, and is best known for being the lead singer of Talking Heads and Byrne headlines this theatrical Broadway experience once again. Byrne led the famous “new-wave” American Rock n’ Roll band Talking Heads from 1975 to 1991, where he helped create the four albums which appear on Rolling Stone’s list of “500 Greatest Albums of All Time”. Talking Heads is also named on Rolling Stone’s "100 Greatest Artists of All Time". This show is Byrne’s second appearance on Broadway.
What’s American Utopia 2020 Like?
American Utopia is presented in a lively concert-like performance format, where David Byrne performs many of the songs from his latest album and also plays some of his Talking Heads hits including; "Life During Wartime", "Psycho Killer", and "Once in a Lifetime". Byrne delivers an unspoken narrative in this show and refrains from articulating it into spoken words. The story unfolds through osmosis from the music, the band and the dance choreography. Unlike other concerts that have found themselves temporarily housed at a Broadway theatre during the 2020-2021 show season, this experience is far more theatrical than the other usual concert performances and delivers a richer experience in a worthy theatre.
Is American Utopia 2020 Good for Kids?
This show is great for all ages, as Bryne sings songs that everybody can sing and/or dance to, but the narrative will fly over the heads of the young ones as this experience is clearly not The Wiggles.
