‘Stereophonic’ Gets A Confident Five-Month Broadway Extension Through The Holidays

Stereophonic, David Adjmi’s play (with music) about a fractious ’70s rock band and the making of what will become its masterpiece, has been extended for 20 weeks, a big show of confidence and thanks from producers.

The play will now run through January 5, 2025, at Broadway‘s Golden Theatre, an extension well beyond the initially planned 14-week run that will take the production through the lucrative holiday season. (The limited engagement was initially intended to close August 18.) The rather unlikely hit show, which drew raves Off Broadway before drawing raves on Broadway, was by no means a sure thing, with its near-documentary fly-on-the-recording-studio-wall approach and bold infusions of original songs that nearly takes Stereophonic from play to musical.

But box office started strong and ticketbuyers regularly fill most if not all of available seats. In April, the play received 13 Tony Award nominations, making Adjmi’s work, directed by Daniel Aukin, the most Tony-nominated Broadway play of all time.

News of the five-month extension was announced last night by the play’s songwriter Will Butler, a Tony nominee himself who revealed the new closing date from the stage of his concert at an East Village music bar.
