Musical inspired by The Man Who Fell To Earth to debut in London in October

David Bowie’s Lazarus musical will premiere in the UK this October following its debut in New York late last year.

The show is inspired by Nicolas Roeg’s 1976 cult classic, The Man Who Fell To Earth, which starred and was co-written by David Bowie alongside Irish playwright Enda Walsh.

The musical was directed by Belgian director Ivo van Hove with the UK version seeing actor Michael C Hall continue his role as Thomas Newton. Lazarus will run at London’s King’s Cross Theatre from October 25 - January 21, 2017. Tickets are on sale here.
