Lazarus - 2016 - West End

£15 - 95

David Bowie and Tony Award-winning playwright Enda Walsh’s off-Broadway production of Lazarus transfers to London’s King Cross Theatre.

Directed by Ivo van Hove, Lazarus is inspired by Walter Tevis’ best-selling 1963 novel The Man Who Fell to Earth and features new songs specially composed by Bowie as well as new arrangements of previously recorded songs including Changes, Absolute Beginners and The Man Who Sold The World.

The world premiere production of Lazarus starring Michael C Hall opened on 7 December 2015 at the New York Theatre Workshop, off-Broadway, shortly before Bowie’s death from cancer.

Reprising their roles from the original New York production are Michael C Hall (Thomas Newton), Michael Esper (Valentine) and Sophia Anne Caruso (Girl).

Lazarus will run from 25 October 2016 until 22 January 2017 at the Kings Cross Theatre South.

Lazarus is based on the classic sci-fi novel The Man Who Fell to Earth by Walter Tevis and centers on the character of Thomas Newton, famously portrayed by David Bowie in the 1976 film. In search of water for his dying planet, an alien arrives on earth. Experimented on by the Government and prevented from leaving, he is doomed to live a miserable reclusive life surrounded by wealth and excess. A glimmer of hope arises when a mysterious girl appears to help him escape planet Earth. But something lurks in the shadows.
