More Broadway: Utopia and Company

Utopia is a play currently at the St. James Theater. On the night of my attendance half the performers and stage crew were out with covid. Because the show must go on David Byrne threw together a concert of his music. Since I know little of his music I stayed for an hour. While I appreciated the chatter and sincerity of this man, the music did not stir me, however his fans were over the moon. And for those die hard Byrne fans it’s a must see and a cheap concert of his tunes narrated by the pleasant actor/musician chap.

Liked the voter registration going on in the St. James lobby. Nice touch..

Some of the billboards outside the St. James Theater

Here’s what the show claims. It won a special Tony this year.

And next show…

Company

What a tour de force this play was! Stephen Sondheim who died this year at 91, shortly after his updated work was begun, must have been proud, and gleeful to have seen this before departing. The cast was superb and each song/dance routine phenomenal. The story follows a NYC single gals 35th birthday party with her married friends encouraging her to get hitched. What fun!

This is a certain Tony winner. It was sublime and A MUST SEE. Prices are good with box office tickets on the day of the performance starting at $43., what a steal. After loosing $500 on stinkers like Diana, Utopia, and Freestyle Love Supreme, maybe my loosing streak has ended!

Enjoy!
