This is music to our ears! Stereophonic, a play with music by David Adjmi and Will Butler, will premiere on Broadway in spring 2024. The 14-week run will begin at the Golden Theatre on April 3 ahead of an April 19 opening night.

The play takes place in a recording studio in 1976, when a rock band is recording the album that might be their breakthrough — if interpersonal drama doesn’t cause their breakup first. Adjmi wrote the script for the show, while Butler, of Arcade Fire, penned original songs, which “deftly summon a late ’70s sound,” our critic writes.

“Whenever the band gets busy, Stereophonic comes alive – and the actor-musicians completely convince as rockers,” New York Theatre Guide’s Stereophonic review continues.

Stereophonic premiered off Broadway at Playwrights Horizons in October 2023, extending multiple times and completely selling out its run. The cast — including Will Brill as Reg, Andrew R. Butler as Charlie, Juliana Canfield as Holly, Eli Gelb as Grover, Tom Pecinka as Peter, Sarah Pidgeon as Diana, and Chris Stack as Simon — all played their own instruments live on stage.

The entire Off-Broadway cast will return for the Broadway transfer.

Additionally, the creative team includes director Daniel Aukin, scenic designer David Zinn, costume designer Enver Chakartash, lighting designer Jiyoun Chang, sound designer Ryan Rumery, and music director Justin Craig.
