Performances for Here Lies Love begin on April 14th with an opening night set for May 1st at the Public Theater's LuEsther Hall in an open-ended commercial run. The principal cast from the 2013 world premiere of Here Lies Love returns, including Ruthie Ann Miles and Jose Llana as Imelda and Ferdinand Marcos, and Conrad Ricamora as Ninoy Aquino. The original cast recording for Here Lies Love, which features the 2013 world premiere cast, will be released on April 22nd.
Here Lies Love was just nominated for a leading eleven (11) Lucille Lortel Awards including Outstanding Musical, and is the previous recipient of the Obie Award for Best Music & Lyrics and the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Music, among many other honors during its celebrated 2013 world premiere engagement.
Under the direction of Alex Timbers, Here Lies Love played a critically raved-about, sold-out run last year at the same space, which was extended by popular demand four times. Here Lies Love was conceived by David Byrne, and features lyrics by Byrne, music by Byrne and Fatboy Slim, additional music by Tom Gandey and J Pardo, and choreography by Annie-B Parson.
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 celebrate Imelda's meteoric rise to political prominence and subsequent tragic consequences of her well-documented abuse of power.
Here Lies Love is a 90-minute theatrical experience. Set within a dance club atmosphere, audiences will stand and move with the actors. Comfortable shoes and clothing are recommended. Dancing is encouraged.
