IN THE SPOTLIGHT: HERE LIES LOVE's Ruthie Ann Miles

The Public Theater's critically acclaimed world premiere of the musical Here Lies Love, with concept and lyrics by David Byrne, recently concluded its run at the Public's downtown home. The show, which has gotten lots of buzz about a possible transfer, features music by Byrne and Fatboy Slim, with additional music by Tom Gandey and J Pardo, and choreography by Annie-B Parson. Below you can check out photos of the show's star, Ruthie Ann Miles, in the BroadwayWorld.com series 'In The Spotlight' by acclaimed photographer Walter McBride!

Within a pulsating dance club atmosphere, David Byrne and Fatboy Slim deconstruct the astonishing journey of Filipina First Lady Imelda Marcos, retracing her meteoric rise to power and subsequent descent into infamy and disgrace at the end of the People Power Revolution. Here Lies Love is neither a period piece nor a biography, neither a play nor a traditional musical, but an immersive theatrical event combining songs influenced by four decades of dance music, adrenaline-fueled choreography and a remarkable 360-degree scenic and video environment to go beyond Imelda's near-mythic obsession with shoes and explore the tragic consequences of the abuse of power.
