Could David Bowie & Enda Walsh's LAZARUS Soon Land in London?

Could David Bowie and Enda Walsh's divisive new musical LAZARUS, which premiered last year Off-Broadway at New York Theatre Workshop, soon land in London?

Though no official announcement has been made, a new website, the domain of which is registered to a member of NYTW, has popped up, touting that a UK production is "coming soon."

The launch of the site comes just a few months after producers confirmed to The Telegraph that a London run of LAZARUS was most likely in the cards.

This isn't the first time that a possible remount of the musical has been mentioned: just days after Bowie's death midway through the NYTW engagement, The New York Post's Michael Riedel reported that there were discussions to bring the show to a commercial off-Broadway theater, or possibly even Broadway.

That same day, however, a Broadway producer told Riedel that the show may not be well-suited for the Great White Way. "I thought the show was brilliant," he said. "but it's pretty inscrutable. No one thought it was commercial until this week."

The New York cast of Lazarus included Golden Globe winner and six-time Emmy nominee Michael C. Hall (Hedwig and the Angry Inch, "Dexter") as Thomas Newton, Tony Award nominee Cristin Milioti (Once) as Elly, and Michael Esper (The Last Ship) as Valentine, as well as Krystina Alabado (American Idiot), Sophia Anne Caruso (The Nether), Nicholas Christopher (Whorl Inside A Loop), Lynn Craig (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson), Bobby Moreno (Year of the Rooster), Krista Pioppi (Spring Awakening Nat'l Tour), Charlie Pollock (The Wild Party), and Brynn Williams (Bye Bye Birdie).

LAZARUS is inspired by the novel The Man Who Fell to Earth by Walter Tevis, and directed by Ivo van Hove (Hedda Gabler, More Stately Mansions, Obie Awards).
