About Stereophonic on Broadway

The heyday of '70s rock returns in Stereophonic, the most Tony Award-nominated play in history with 13 nods in 2024, including Best Play. See the critically acclaimed new play by David Adjmi with new music by Will Butler of Arcade Fire, and experience the show that rocked audiences during its sold-out world premiere off Broadway, now coming to Broadway's Golden Theatre for 14 weeks only. Get Stereophonic tickets on New York Theatre Guide.

The Stereophonic play allows audiences to be flies on the wall of a recording studio in 1976 Sausalito, California, where an up-and-coming rock band is on the verge of its big break. But the mounting pressure of fame might cause their breakup first. Playwrights Horizons first presented the show in fall 2023, extending multiple times due to popular demand.

All seven actors in the Stereophonic cast are also instrumentalists who play Butler's original rock tunes live on stage. Butler is a multi-instrumentalist best known for his career with the indie rock band Arcade Fire since 2002. He's also a composer, earning an Oscar nomination for writing the score for the 2013 film Her alongside Owen Pallat.

For Stereophonic on Broadway and off, Butler collaborated with playwright Adjmi, who previously explored the behind-the-scenes of '70s sitcoms in his play 3C. He was inspired to write Stereophonic after hearing Led Zeppelin’s “Babe I’m Going to Leave You” on the radio during a flight. The contrast between the lyrics and their subtext not only inspired the play, but Adjmi's idea for the design: The set is divided into two soundproofed sections, so characters in the recording booth cannot hear what the others are doing elsewhere in the studio, further complicating their relationships.

Great music, direction, singing, acting & staging, Resonant, Masterful, Intense, Epic

See it if Band members struggle with personal & relationship crises while making #1 albums. Great characters, epic scope & stunning performances.

Don’t see it if Long & unhappy. But also a lot of humor! The main theme is sacrifices made for art. Drug use. Quiet dialog (use hearing assist if needed!)

Epic, Great staging, Great acting, Great singing, Absorbing

See it if you’re intrigued by an ensemble piece about a 70s rock band putting together an album. Excellent music/singing, direction and staging.

Don’t see it if you’re put off by the 3:15 runtime. Art about art isn’t your style. You want plot over slice-of-life.
