(3 Nov 2016) BOWIE MUSICAL 'LAZARUS' SET TO OPEN IN LONDON
The European premiere of David Bowie's musical 'Lazarus,' which played a sold-out Off-Broadway run earlier this year in New York, is set for November 8.
Original New York cast members Michael C. Hall, Michael Esper, and Sophia Anne Caruso are reprising their roles in director Ivo van Hove's production.
Bowie died in January from cancer. He was able to see the New York show before his death at age 69.
The play starring "Dexter" and "Six Feet Under" actor Michael C. Hall, was a hit since its previews and Bowie's death made tickets even harder to come by.
Bowie wrote the musical with Irish playwright Enda Walsh as a sequel to the 1963 novel "The Man Who Fell to Earth" by Walter Tevis, which inspired the 1976 film of the same name that he starred in.
Michael C Hall stars as Newton, the character famously portrayed by David Bowie in the 1976 screen adaptation directed by Nicolas Roeg.
The play focuses on Newton as he remains still on Earth - a 'man' unable to die.
The set list comprises some of Bowie's biggest hits _ including "Changes," "Heroes," "Absolute Beginners" and "Life on Mars" _ as well as new songs like "Lazarus," taken from Bowie's "Blackstar" album, released shortly before his death.
Lazarus is scheduled to run in London through 22 January 2017.
