Following its 2019 smash hit at the Hudson Theatre and the 18-month pandemic shutdown, American Utopia returns to Broadway on Friday, September 17, 2021. However, the show was honored with a Special Tony Award in September of 2021. 

David Byrne’s original production began as an album released in 2018. Later that year, the theatrical concert played more than 150 dates in 27 countries. Additionally, the album includes songs from Talking Heads and Byrne’s solo career.

Club said, “David Byrne and Spike Lee found the spectacle in the performers simply performing.”
