David Bowie musical Lazarus will make its West End debut this October

Inspired by the Walter Tevis’ novel, The Man Who Fell To Earth, Lazarus will make its West End debut at King’s Cross Theatre this October.

First performed at the end of 2015, the production was one of the last works Bowie completed before his death on 10 January 2016.

Also written by Enda Walsh, Lazarus is directed by Ivo Van Hove, with design by Jan Versweyveld.

“WILD, FANTASTICAL, EYE-POPPING. A SURREALISTIC TOUR DE FORCE,” said Rolling Stone.

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

Produced by Robert Fox and Jones/Tintoretto Entertainment by arrangement with Tristan Baker and Oliver Royds.

Lazarus will run at London’s King’s Cross Theatre between 25 October – 22 January, book now at Ticketmaster.co.uk.
