Lazarus, the final work of David Bowie that premiered in New York in November 2015 before his death in January 2016 and ran on beyond it, creating an impromptu shrine to him, is to receive its London premiere. It will begin performances October 25 at the King's Cross Theatre, prior to an official opening November 8, for a run through January 22, 2017.
The musical, written by David Bowie and Enda Walsh and inspired by Walter Trevis' novel The Man Who Fell To Earth, revolves around Thomas Newton (Hall), an alien who “remains still on Earth—a ‘man’ unable to die, his head soaked in cheap gin and haunted by a past love. We follow Newton during the course of a few days where the arrival of another lost soul might set him finally free.”
Produced by Robert Fox Ltd. and Jones/Tintoretto Entertainment, the show has scenic and lighting design by Jan Versweyveld, costumes by An D'Huys, video design by Tal Yarden, original sound by Brian Ronan with U.K. sound by Tony Gayle, choreography by Annie-B Parson, hair and wig design by Richard Mawbey, and musical direction by Henry Hey. Casting is by Jill Green.
