BWW CD Reviews: Nonesuch's HERE LIES LOVE (Original Cast Recording) is Bubbly, Pop-Laden Fun
by David Clarke - July 8, 2014

Imelda Marcos is a ripe public figure for having a biographic musical written about her. Personally, I always expected a musical about her life would have that grand and epic cinematic sound of Andrew Lloyd Webber's EVITA. However, I couldn't be more pleased with David Byrne and Fatboy Slim's rich pop score for HERE LIES LOVE.


Here Lies Love has had 4 productions including Off-Broadway which opened in 2013, Off-Broadway which opened in 2014, West End which opened in 2014 and Broadway which opened in 2023.
