Lazarus features new songs specially composed by Bowie as well as new arrangements of previously recorded songs; the musical is currently running at New York Theatre Workshop through Jan. 20. Inspired by Walter Tevis' best-selling 1963 novel "The Man Who Fell to Earth," the story follows Thomas Newton – played by Hall – a human-looking and lovelorn alien who has been abandoned on the planet. The Off-Broadway production, which officially opened Dec. 7, is helmed by Obie winner Ivo van Hove and has received numerous extensions due to high ticket demand.
