“WILD, FANTASTICAL, EYE-POPPING. A SURREALISTIC TOUR DE FORCE.” – Rolling Stone
To remember David Bowie on his birthday and to mark the fifth anniversary of his untimely death, producers Robert Fox and RZO Entertainment Inc are releasing the London production of Lazarus, captured live on stage.
Inspired by the book, The Man Who Fell To Earth by Walter Tevis (“The Queen’s Gambit”), 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 over the course of a few days where the arrival of another lost soul might finally set him free.
Lazarus includes songs from Bowie’s iconic catalogue as well as brand-new music written for the stage.
Michael C Hall (“Dexter”, “Six Feet Under”) stars as Newton, the character famously portrayed by David Bowie in the 1976 screen adaptation of The Man Who Fell To Earth directed by Nicolas Roeg. Lazarus co-stars Sophia Anne Caruso (“Beetlejuice” on Broadway) and the production is directed by Ivo van Hove (“All About Eve”, “Network” and “A View From The Bridge”).
Lazarus broke box office records when it played a strictly limited, sold-out run in New York in 2015. The production then moved to the King’s Cross Theatre in 2016 where it played a sold-out 13-week run.
This live-streamed event will be available for three performances only in multiple time zones (GMT, AEDT, EST, PST) from Friday 8 to Sunday 10 January 2021.
Additional donations will be shared between two charities - Theatre Artists Fund and Help Musicians.
