Production images for the European premiere of David Bowie and Enda Walsh’s musical Lazarus have been released, as the show opens for previews.
Playing for thirteen weeks only in a brand new 900 seat venue built at King’s Cross Theatre, Lazarus will see Michael C Hall as Newton, Michael Esper as Valentine and Sophia Anne Caruso as Girl, all reprising their roles from the original New York Theatre Workshop production.
Directed by Ivo van Hove, the musical will also star Amy Lennox (Kinky Boots, Decade), 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.
The musical is based on The Man Who Fell To Earth and follows the story of 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. Audiences will follow Newton during the course of a few days where the arrival of another lost soul might set him finally free.
Featuring music from David Bowie’s back catalogue as well as brand new music written for the stage production, Lazarus broke box office records when it played a limited run in New York from 18th November until the 20th January 2016.
The production features scenic and lighting design by Jan Versweyveld, costume design by An D’Huys, video design by Tal Yarden and choreography by Annie-B Parson.
Lazarus is booking at King’s Cross Theatre until the 22nd January 2017. To book tickets visit: Ticketmaster.co.uk, Discount Theatre.com, Theatre Tickets Direct.co.uk, Love Theatre.com, Theatre People.com and UK Tickets.co.uk.
