David Bowie & Enda Walsh's LAZARUS to Play Temporary Venue in London?

A temporary London venue will be built specifically to house David Bowie and Enda Walsh's new musical LAZARUS, which premiered last year Off-Broadway at New York Theatre Workshop.

The Daily Mail reports that an 800-seat theater will be constructed as part of the King's Cross Complex, which the show will move into either late this autumn or early next spring, featuring some "tweaking and fine-tuning" and hopefully with its New York star -- Michael C. Hall -- in tow. Robert Fox will produce.

As BroadwayWorld previously revealed, a new website recently popped up touting that a UK production of LAZARUS was "coming soon." The news came just a few months after producers confirmed to The Telegraph that a London run of LAZARUS was most likely in the cards.

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).
