STAGE TUBE: David Byrne and Jaygee Macapugay Talk HERE LIES LOVE
USA Today just posted an interview with Here Lies Love creator David Byrne and the show's star, Jaygee Macapugay. The pair talks about the interactive nature of the musical, Byrne's transition to writing "popier" songs and more. Watch below!
Within a pulsating dance club atmosphere, David Byrne and Fatboy Slim deconstruct the astonishing journey of Filipina First Lady Imelda Marcos retracing her rise to power and subsequent descent into infamy and disgrace at the end of the People Power Revolution. Here Lies Love is 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.
Under the direction of Alex Timbers, 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. Scenic design is by David Korins, costume design by Clint Ramos, lighting design by Justin Townsend, sound design by M.L. Dogg & Cody Spencer and projection design by Peter Nigrini. Kimberly Grigsby served as Music Supervisor.Buy Tickets to Here Lies Love - click here.
