Cristin Milioti, Michael Esper & More Will Join Michael C. Hall in David Bowie's & Enda Walsh's LAZARUS Off-Broadway

New York Theatre Workshop (NYTW) has announced the full cast for Lazarus, by David Bowie and Enda Walsh (Once, Tony Award), 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). Lazarus begins previews on November 18, with an opening night set for December 7, 2015.

Joining previously announced Golden Globe winner and six-time Emmy nominee Michael C. Hall (Hedwig and the Angry Inch, "Dexter") is Tony Award nominee Cristin Milioti, returning to NYTW for the fourth time, having starred in the NYTW productions of Little Foxes, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter, and the Tony Award-winning musical Once; and Michael Esper (Broadway's The Last Ship) in his NYTW debut.

Rounding out the cast is 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).

Hall, who was last seen at NYTW in a workshop of Stephen Sondheim's WISE GUYS, will play 'Thomas Newton', the character famously portrayed by Mr. Bowie in the 1976 screen adaptation directed by Nicolas Roeg. Milioti will play "Elly," with Esper portraying "Valentine."

Following his revelatory production of Ingmar Bergman's Scenes from a Marriage, the internationally acclaimed director Ivo van Hove returns to New York Theatre Workshop with a new production, Lazarus. Mr. Walsh makes his return to NYTW after the successful run of Once. Lazarus features songs specially composed by Mr. Bowie for this production as well as new arrangements of previously recorded songs.

Currently in previews at New York Theatre Workshop is the world premiere of FONDLY, COLLETTE RICHLAND, a new play by NYTW's Obie and Lortel award-winning company-in-residence Elevator Repair Service, written by Sibyl Kempson and directed by ERS Artistic Director John Collins. The New York premiere of RED SPEEDO, written by Lucas Hnath (The Christians) and directed by Lileana Blain-Cruz (Hollow Roots), will begin performances in February. The 2015/16 season will conclude with the world premiere of a new folk opera, HADESTOWN, by singer-songwriter Anaïs Mitchell.
