"American Utopia"

First an album, then a Broadway show, and now a film!  The concert film, directed by Spike Lee, no less, is a documentary featuring the Broadway production, “David Byrne’s American Utopia.”

The Broadway show featured an anthology of songs from David Byrne’s Talking Heads days, through to the “American Utopia” album, his first top 10 on the “Billboard 200,” released in March 2018.  The production also featured Byrne speaking on the state of the country.  It ran on Broadway at the Hudson Theatre from October 2019 to February 2020 and is scheduled to make a return once New York Theatre resumes.  More info on the Broadway show here.  

The film makes its set to debut as the opener for the Toronto Film Festival on September 10th. It will then be available on HBO Max starting on October 17th.
