A musical penned by David Bowie is set to return to London’s West End, announced just days after his tragic death.
Currently running off-Broadway in New York, ‘Lazarus’ features 20 Bowie hits, including songs from his latest album Blackstar, which was released just two days before he died of cancer.
The show acts as a sequel to the 1963 Walter Tevis novel The Man Who Came To Earth, with its script and music written by Bowie and Enda Walsh.
No date has been set for Lazarus’ arrival in London yet, but the show’s current producer Robert Fox said: “It’s definitely going to happen in London. Ideally I would like to find an alternative space but they are few and far between and it will probably go to a West End theatre. But it’s too early in the process to know exactly where and exactly when.”
Watch this space.
