Cast for David Bowie's musical Lazarus at the Kings Cross Theatre in October

Updated 15th September:  The full cast has just been announced:

Michael C Hall has revealed that the recording sessions took place on the day after Bowie's death. He will perform the title track from the musical  at the Mercury Prize awards.

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

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.

Directed by Ivo van Hove, the show will play Tuesday to Saturdays at 8:00 pm with 3:00 pm matinees on Wednesday, Saturday & Sundays.

The show premiered at the New York Theatre Workshop in 2015  selling out in record time. Reprising their roles from the original New York production are Michael C Hall, Michael Esper and Sophia Anne Caruso.
