David Byrne’s ‘American Utopia’ to re-open on Broadway in September 2021


Talking Heads rocker David Byrne is coming back to Broadway next year.

His hit musical, “American Utopia” will return Sept. 17, 2021, the producers said on Wednesday. Spike Lee filmed a version of the show that will debut on HBO on Oct. 17.

The show was meant to come back to the Hudson Theatre this September, but was postponed by the pandemic. Lee filmed the show during its initial run.

But Deadline reported that Byrne’s return could put a damper, again, on plans for a revival of Neil Simon’s “Plaza Suite” starring husband-and-wife Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick.

That show has reportedly had two postponements and was meant to launch in spring of 2020 and 2021 at the Hudson.

There’s been no word on its future since Broadway theaters went dark.
