While it's not exactly a concert and not quite a musical, American Utopia has made a decisive splash, arriving on the Broadway boards with 86.18 percent of its potential in its first weekend. Over three previews, David Byrne's theatrical event grossed $395,604, playing to 99 percent capacity crowds at the Hudson Theatre.

The show reunites Byrne with his Here Lies Loves collaborators: director Alex Timbers (who serves as production consultant) and choreographer Annie-B Parson. Opening night is set for October 20, with performances scheduled through January 19, 2020.
