David Adjmi’s “Stereophonic” opened on April 19 Broadway at the Golden Theatre to a star-studded crowd including J. Cameron-Smith, Ani DiFranco, Common, Andrew Wyatt, Clyde Lawrence, Rachel Brosnahan, Alex Edelman, Amber Gray, Marin Ireland, Justin Peck, Lynn Nottage, Sammy Rae Bowers, Louisa Jacobson, David Rasche, Stark Sands, Miriam Silverman, and many more.

The show, which premiered last year at Playwrights Horizons, mines the agony and the ecstasy of creation as it zooms in on a music studio in 1976, where 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.

The cast includes 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.

For the opening night, there was a one-time-only musical encore for invited guests, featuring Academy Award nominee and Grammy Award winner Will Butler, the composer of the original songs featured in the show.

It was recently announced that “Stereophonic” will release an original cast recording through Sony Masterworks Broadway. The digital album arrives May 10 with the physical CD release set for June 14/
