David Bowie’s Lazarus
The musical is being livestreamed for the first time.
There are multiple shows across four time zones in the US, Canada, Europe, Australia and New Zealand from Friday, Jan. 8th – his birthday – to Sunday, Jan. 10th, the anniversary of his death.
Rolling Stone described Lazarus as “milk-swimming, lingerie-sniffing, gin-chugging theater at its finest”.
The production was recorded live on the King’s Cross Theatre stage in 2016, starring Michael C. Hall as Thomas Newton in the role Bowie himself played in the 1976 film The Man Who Fell to Earth, which inspired the Lazarus musical.
Sophia Anne Caruso from the musical Beetlejuice and actress Amy Lennox also starred in the sold-out London production, which ran from November 2016 to January 2017.
