David Bowie’s Lazarus musical to stream online this January
James R | On 02, Jan 2021
To celebrate David Bowie’s birthday and mark the fifth anniversary of his untimely death, producers Robert Fox and RZO Entertainment Inc are streaming 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 follows 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. Set over the course of a few days, the musical sees the arrival of another lost soul, which might finally set him free.
Lazarus includes songs from Bowie’s iconic catalogue as well as new music written for the stage. Michael C Hall (Dexter) 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).
The event will be available to stream for three performances only in multiple time zones from Friday 8th to Sunday 10th January 2021. Tickets will cost £16 and additional donations will be shared between two charities – the Theatre Artists Fund and Help Musicians. Full details on how to access the show via Dice.fm will be sent by email 30 minutes before the stream is due to start. Book tickets here
