David Bowie’s Lazarus comes to London
Lazarus by David Bowie and Enda Walsh | Kings Cross Theatre, Kings Cross | 25 October-22 January | Ticket from £15
BY David Bowie and Enda Walsh
DIRECTION Ivo van Hove
INSPIRED BY THE NOVEL The Man Who Fell To Earth by Walter Tevis
Very exciting news has hit To Do List towers! Lazarus the David Bowie/Enda Walsh theatre spectacular is coming to London in Autumn this year.
Bowie is said to have really wanted to write theatre shows in the later days of his life so this is an amazing opportunity to get closer to the creative ideas behind the late genius.
Here’s the synopsis from the horse’s mouth:
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.
