‘American Utopia’ Theater Review: David Byrne’s Musical Jamboree With A Political Conscience
Part Talking Heads concert, part citizenship pep rally, David Byrne’s American Utopia is all fun. Byrne, the former lead singer of The Talking Heads, is ringmaster of this affair accompanied by an onstage band fitted in identical grey suits. The idea, he tells us, is to strip it all down to bare components of the show – and let the meaning stand for itself. Heads fans won’t be disappointed as the music includes the classics “Once In A Lifetime” and “Burning Down The House.” The 67-year-old auteur leads the audience through raucous musical jamboree with a political conscience – advising the guests to register to vote and it’s ok to dance! No need to state the obvious, the audience was already on its feet! GET DEALS ON TICKETS HERE!
