Join the company of Broadway's Stereophonic for a two-show day when Tony nominee Will Brill takes over Playbill's Instagram June 8. Brill will be posting throughout the day, so make sure you're following @Playbill to keep up on all the action.

Stereophonic recently made history as the most Tony Award nominated play ever, with 13 nominations including Best Play. In addition to Brill, the play stars Andrew R. Butler, Juliana Canfield, Eli Gelb, Tom Pecinka, Sarah Pidgeon, and Chris Stack.

The play with music is written by David Adjmi and follows a 1970s rock band as they record their sophomore album over the course of a year and battle personal drama along the way. Originally a limited engagement for 14 weeks at the Golden Theatre, the play has extended through January 5, 2025.

As Adjmi told Playbill in a previous interview: “I definitely knew from the beginning that I wanted it to feel very granular. I wanted them to talk about very mundane things, because that is what a collaborative process is like. And even though people look really glamorous and really blown out on stage, I can channel this profound energy of when they're living their lives—doing laundry and frying an egg. I'm really interested in that duality. And I just didn't want to do a boilerplate depiction of rock stars.”

The show originally ran Off-Broadway at Playwrights Horizons in late 2023. Rave reviews and positive word of mouth led to an extension Off-Broadway and then a fast Broadway transfer, with the full cast reprising their roles.

The production is supported by understudies Cornelius McMoyler, Benjamin Anthony Anderson, Sofia Deler, and Lily Ganser. Casting is by Alaine Alldaffer and Taylor Williams.

The show is directed by Daniel Aukin and features costume designer Enver Chakartash, lighting designer Jiyoun Chang, sound designer Ryan Rumery, music director Justin Craig, and vocal coach Gigi Buffington.

The Broadway run is produced by Sue Wagner, John Johnson, Seaview, Sonia Friedman Productions, Linden Productions, and Ashley Melone & Nick Mills.
