In his Critic’s Pick review, Naveen Kumar of The New York Times exclaimed, “Stereophonic is a staggering achievement, and already feels like a must-see American 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 Tony Award nominee David Zinn (scenic designer), Tony Award nominee Enver Chakartash (costume designer), Tony Award nominee Jiyoun Chang (lighting designer), Tony Award nominees Butler and Justin Craig (orchestrations) Tony Award nominee 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
