Megastar David Bowie and Tony Award-winning playwright Enda Walsh’s hit off-Broadway musical Lazarus transfers to London’s Kings Cross Theatre in autumn 2016. Directed by Ivo van Hove (A View from the Bridge), the production previously premiered in December 2015 at the New York Theatre Workshop, the production now receives its West End premiere.

Lazarus is inspired by Walter Tevis’ best-selling 1963 novel The Man Who Fell to Earth, which was subsequently made into a film starring Bowie. Following Thomas Newton as he remains on earth as a “man” unable to die, he is haunted by a past love and engulfed by cheap gin. Soon, the arrival of another lost soul makes him believe that he could finally be set free. Featuring a catalogue of new songs composed by Bowie, as well as new arrangements of “Changes”, “Absolute Beginners” and “The Man Who Sold the World”, this fantastical musical is guaranteed to be a hit.

Dexter star Michael C Hall reprises his role as Thomas Newton, following an extensive career on Broadway. Credits include Chicago, The Realistic Joneses and Hedwig and the Angry Inch, amongst many others. Further cast members who reprise their roles from the off-Broadway run are Michael Esper as Valentine and Sophia Anne Caruso as Girl. Further casting includes Amy Lennox (Kinky Boots) as Elly and Jamie Muscato (Bend it Like Beckham) as Ben, with Gabrielle Brooks, Sydnie Christmas, Richard Hansell, Maimuna Memon, Tom Parsons and Julie Yammanee.

Directed by Ivo van Hove, Lazarus features design by Jan Versweyveld. An eye-popping journey into the surreal mind of one man, Lazarus is set to open at a brand new 800-seat West End temporary venue, the King’s Cross Theatre (South Entrance).
