Road trip: "David Byrne's American Utopia"
David Byrne’s American Utopia
Hudson Theatre, New York City
This is an absolutely thrilling experience. It’s essentially a concert, but it's a David Byrne concert, so it percolates with as much visual creativity as musical. Everything from the silvery curtains of beads that hang around the stage to the lighting — it’s all cleverly used. The band members, all barefoot and dressed in gray suits, are mobile (they are wireless and carrying their instruments), and they move around in cool choreography. As joyous as “American Utopia” often is, there are serious messages woven in about humanity and inclusion. The show runs on Broadway through Feb. 16 at the Hudson Theatre, 141 W 44th St., and tickets start at $109.
