David Bowie musical Lazarus to open in London

Lazarus, the uncannily named stage musical showcasing the songs of David Bowie, is to open in London this autumn after a successful run in New York.

Inspired by the book, The Man Who Fell To Earth, the show premiered last November in the New York Theatre, just a matter of weeks before David Bowie’s death in January of this year.David Bowie musical Lazarus 2

David Bowie co-wrote Lazarus with Irish playwright Enda Walsh, the award-winning writer of Once. The London production will run at the Kings Cross Theatre from 25th October to 22nd January 2017.

Reprising their roles from the original New York production are Michael C Hall, who starred in hit TV series Dexter, Michael Esper and Sophia Anne Caruso.

Lazarus recounts the story of a human-looking alien who comes to Earth. The production has real pedigree, directed by Ivo van Hove the Belgian director behind the acclaimed A View From the Bridge, starring Mark Strong, which ran in London and New York.

When it opened in New York, The Guardian described Lazarus as “unapologetically weird… and oddly intriguing” whilst Rolling Stone summarised the show as a “surrealistic tour de force.”
