Last Chance to See LAZARUS at King's Cross Theatre
Audiences have just over a month left to experience David Bowie and Enda Walsh's Lazarus. The final performance of the production's strictly limited 13-week run will be held on Sunday 22 January 2017 at King's Cross Theatre, the brand new 900-seater venue built specifically for the production.
Inspired by the book, The Man Who Fell To Earth, Lazarus focuses on Thomas Newton as he remains still on Earth - a 'man' unable to die, his head soaked in cheap gin and haunted by a past love. We follow Newton during the course of a few days where the arrival of another lost soul might set him finally free.
Reprising their roles from the New York Theatre Workshop production, Michael C Hall, Michael Esper and Sophia Anne Caruso have been joined by Olivier-nominated British actress Amy Lennox. The full cast includes Jon Boydon, Gabrielle Brooks, Sydnie Christmas, Alexandra Da Silva, Richard Hansell, Trina Hill, Maimuna Memon, Jamie Muscato, Tom Parsons, Hannah Rose Thompson, Paul Westwood and Julie Yammanee.
Directed by Ivo Van Hove, Lazarus includes songs from Bowie's iconic catalogue as well as brand new music written for the stage. The Lazarus Cast Album was released on 21 October on RCA / ISO Records, featuring performances by the original NYTW company as well as three of Bowie's final studio recordings, now released for the first time.
