News   David Bowie's Lazarus Adds Three More Performances and a Hefty Price Increase
 
Following an earlier sell-out and extension, New York Theatre Workshop has announced three additional performances of Lazarus, by Tony-winning playwright Enda Walsh (Once) with music by David Bowie. The final performance of the genre-defying new work will benefit NYTW’s artistic development and education programming, with tickets starting at $1,000.

The pricey ticket includes one ticket to the final performance plus a VIP invitation for two to NYTW’s upcoming production of Red Speedo. For $2,500, the ticket will include access to an after-party celebrating the Lazarus run and a VIP invitation for two to NYTW’s upcoming productions. 

Tickets for the additional performances are on sale now at NYTW.org or by calling (212) 460-5475. 

Lazarus, which features new songs specially composed by Bowie as well as new arrangements of previously recorded songs, is now scheduled to run through Jan. 20, 2016, at New York Theatre Workshop. Following previews that began Nov. 18, the world-premiere production officially opens Off-Broadway Dec. 7. The cast includes "Dexter" and Hedwig star Michael C. Hall, Cristin Milioti (Once) and The Last Ship's Michael Esper.

The Secret Behind New York Theatre Workshop's Fastest-Selling Production Ever, David Bowie's Lazarus The production, which is inspired by Walter Tevis' best-selling 1963 novel "The Man Who Fell to Earth," is helmed by Obie winner Ivo van Hove, who returns to NYTW following his acclaimed staging of Scenes From a Marriage
