Lazarus to open at the Kings Cross Theatre in October

David Bowie and Enda Walsh's musical Lazarus will open at the Kings Cross Theatre on 8th November 2016 (previews from 25th October) for a limited run to 22nd January 2017.

Directed by Ivo van Hove, the show will play Tuesday to Saturdays at 8pm with 3pm matinees on Wednesday, Saturday & Sundays.

Lazarus premiered at the New York Theatre Workshop in 2015 with the run selling out in record time. Reprising their roles from the original New York production are Michael C Hall, Michael Esper and Sophia Anne Caruso. Full casting will be announced at a later date.

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.
