Photo Flash: Joan Rivers Visits HERE LIES LOVE
Joan Rivers was seen dancing along with cast of the David Byrne/Fatboy Slim hit musical HERE LIES LOVE, directed by Alex Timbers at the Public Theatre. Joan opted not for the seated balcony but actually brought flats and joined the audience on the disco floor where the show takes place. She loved the show so much that she raved about it two days later on Fox 5's "Good Day New York" as well as at her new book signing at Barnes & Noble on Union Square, telling fans, "If you see one show this year, you must see HERE LIES LOVE. It is phenomenal!" Scroll down for photos of Rivers with the cast!
Here Lies Love is playing a smash open-ended run at the Public Theatre and it just announced its first International Company at the Dorfman Theatre in London opening this Fall. Interest and plans are in the works for several upcoming national and international productions.
HERE LIES LOVE, which premiered in New York in 2013 to critical and popular acclaim, traces the astonishing journey of Imelda Marcos, First Lady of the Philippines, from her meteoric rise to power to descent into infamy and disgrace. The new Dorfman Theatre is transformed into a pulsating club for an immersive theatrical event which combines heart-pounding beats with adrenaline-fuelled choreography and 360-degree staging.
With concept and lyrics by David Byrne, music by David Byrne and Fatboy Slim, and additional music by Tom Gandey and J Pardo, HERE LIES LOVE is directed by Alex Timbers, with choreography by Annie-B Parson, set design by David Korins, costume design by Clint Ramos, lighting by Justin Townsend, sound by M. L. Dogg and Cody Spencer, and projection design by Peter Nigrini. The music supervisor is Kimberly Grigsby; Justin Levine is the collaborating music producer, and the music editor is Matt Stine.
