After having its original premiere in New York almost two decades ago, Kenneth Lonergan’s highly-lauded play This is Our Youth has finally made it to Broadway. Starring Michael Cera, Kieran Culkin, and Tavi Gevinson with direct by  Anna D. Shapiro, the revamping of Lonergan’s 1996 production has been in previews but will have its premiere on September 11. In addition to the new cast, Vampire Weekend’s talented Rostam Batmanglij has written the score for the show, which follows, “three wayward young people as they navigate 1982 New York, recreating their broken homes in both their dysfunctional friendships and their bungled attempts at finding love.” 

And now, you can listen his beautifully delicate a piece of music from This is Our Youth, titled “Upper West Side, 1982″ HERE.  I would suggest getting your tickets quick, as this is certainly something not to be missed.
