Following a sold-out world tour, the acclaimed theatrical concert comes to Boston’s Emerson Colonial Theatre for an exclusive Pre-Broadway engagement, and then hits Broadway’s Hudson Theatre for 16 weeks only. DAVID BYRNE’S AMERICAN UTOPIA delivers “an experience unlike anything else” (Billboard) and marks a major cultural milestone in the worlds of music and theater. Innovative pop/rock icon David Byrne (Talking Heads, Here Lies Love) shares the spotlight with a diverse ensemble of 11 musical artists from around the globe. Together with production consultant Alex Timbers and choreographer Annie-B Parson (his collaborators on Here Lies Love), Byrne and ensemble deliver “a marvel of staging and motion” (Chicago Tribune) that’s as surprisingly poignant as it is supremely funky. Don’t miss this “thought-provoking example of the power of live music” (Forbes) as it explodes off the stage of one of Broadway’s most intimate theatres.
