A screening of the London presentation of David Bowie and Enda Walsh's Lazarus is presented May 2 at the Kings Theatre in Brooklyn.
The 8 PM screening will feature live accompaniment by the band who brought the musical to life in New York: musical director-arranger-keyboardist Henry Hey, keyboardist-guitarist JJ Appleton, drummer Brian Delaney, saxophonist Lucas Dodd, bassist Fima Ephron, trombonist Karl Lyden, and guitarist Chris McQueen.
The screening captured the 2016 London cast, including Michael C. Hall as Thomas Jerome Newton, Amy Lennos as Elly, Sophia Anne Caruso as Girl, Michael Esper as Valentine, and Jamie Muscato as Ben.
Written by Bowie and Walsh, Lazarus was inspired by Walter Tevis’ novel The Man Who Fell to Earth and starred Hall as Newton, the character Bowie portrayed in the 1976 film adaptation of the book.
Directed by Ivo van Hove and produced by Robert Fox, Lazarus opened in December 2015 at Off-Broadway's New York Theatre Workshop; tickets to the entire New York run sold out within hours of going on sale. The London production had a limited run at the Kings Cross Theatre which opened in November the following year.
