Bowie brings pen to ‘Lazarus’

Bowie will contribute several new songs and reworked Bowie classics for the play and is co-writing it with playwright Enda Walsh, who wrote the Tony-winning stage adaptation of the 2007 movie “Once.”
Belgian director Ivo van Hove will oversee it.
Bowie will not be reprising his role onstage.
The play is scheduled to open later this year.
