The Starman’s musical, ‘Lazarus’, is coming to London later this year and it promises to be out of this world (sorry, couldn’t help it). The show has already run its debut in New York and is now getting ready to appear at King’s Cross Theatre from October 25 – 22 January 2017.
The musical is based on the novel The Man Who Fell To Earth, written by Walter Tevis. It’s an intriguing story about an alien stuck on Earth, a character who David Bowie starred as in the film adaptation in 1976.
The cast includes Dexter front man Michael C. Hall and Michael Esper, who you may recognise from A Beautiful Mind or Frances Ha. Both actors are reprising their roles from the New York production, which finished earlier this year.
‘Lazarus’ was one of Bowie’s last projects before he sadly passed away in January this year, and it was co-written by Enda Walsh, the award winning playwright of Once. It will feature some of Bowie’s greatest songs, including old and new material such as ‘The Man Who Sold the World’, ‘Heroes’ and ‘Lazarus’, a track from the icon’s twenty-fifth and final album, Blackstar.
Tickets range from £15 – £95 and can be found here.
