Theater Pizzazz had the privilege of attending the new opening night of American Utopia, the David Byrne musical on Friday night, September 17. JK Clarke was on hand at the St. James Theatre to snap photos of the closing number (a rousing “Road to Nowhere” from the Talking Heads’ 1985 Little Creatures album) and curtain call. Byrne invited the show’s technical crew up on stage for a bow and expressed thanks for their vital work in keeping the production running smoothly. As one of many Broadway shows returning to the stage after the lifting of pandemic restrictions, there was palpable excitement and joy in the air and the show was a perfect way to celebrate it.
