Most people declared that they'd had enough of stage shows 'featuring the music of ...' sometime around 2012. But prepare to reverse gear with news that David Bowie's musical is coming to town.
Named Lazarus, the show premiered in New York last November, shortly before the singer's death. It's a sequel to the 1976 film (and earlier novel) The Man Who Fell To Earth — the story of a human-like alien stranded on Earth. The London show will see many of the stars from New York reprise their rolls.
Lazarus has received many positive reviews, despite being 'baffling' and 'unapologetically weird'. The show was co-written by Bowie himself, and features many of his most notable songs as well as a few new numbers.
Lazarus runs at Kings Cross Theatre from 25 October 2016 to 22 January 2017. Get tickets now.
