New York, NY (Friday, April 19) – Producers Sue Wagner, John Johnson, Seaview, Sonia Friedman Productions, Linden Productions, Ashley Melone & Nick Mills, and Sony Masterworks Broadway are proud to announce that the season's most critically acclaimed new play, Stereophonic by David Adjmi, will release an original cast recording produced by Playwrights Horizons and featuring original songs by Academy Award® nominee and Grammy Award® winner Will Butler, formerly of Arcade Fire. The digital album arrives May 10, 2024, with the physical CD release set for June 14. The Album is available for preorder now.




Direct from its smash hit world premiere engagement at Playwrights Horizons, Stereophonic is directed by Daniel Aukin and dominated the "Best Theater of 2023" lists, with top rankings in The New York Times, New York Magazine, The Washington Post, Time Out New York, Town & Country, TheaterMania, Theaterly, and The Spectator. The production is currently in performances at Broadway's Golden Theatre (252 W. 45th Street) with an official opening night TONIGHT, Friday, April 19 for 14 weeks only.

The cast, reprising their highly lauded performances, will include 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.

In his Critic's Pick review, Jesse Green of The New York Times exclaimed, "The play, Adjmi's best so far, is as rich and lustrous as they come. You could even call it platinum," while praising Aukin's "relentlessly compelling production." Jackson McHenry of New York Magazine enthused, "If you've recently tried to sate yourself with imitation-crab rock-history dramatizations, you'll find that Stereophonic is, refreshingly, the real thing." And David Cote of The Observer, lauded Stereophonic "an instant classic".

Stereophonic mines the agony and the ecstasy of creation as it zooms in on a music studio in 1976. Here, an up-and-coming rock band recording a new album finds itself suddenly on the cusp of superstardom. The ensuing pressures could spark their breakup — or their breakthrough. In Stereophonic, Adjmi invites the audience to immerse themselves—with fly-on-the-wall intimacy—in the powder keg process of a band on the brink of blowing up.

The Stereophonic creative team includes David Zinn (scenic designer), Enver Chakartash (costume designer), Jiyoun Chang (lighting designer), Ryan Rumery (sound designer), Justin Craig (music director), and Gigi Buffington (voice, text, and dialect coach). Casting is by Alaine Alldaffer and Taylor Williams, CSA. Production stage manager is Erin Gioia Albrecht and Andie Burns serves as assistant stage manager.
