Bowie brings pen to ‘Lazarus’

Los Angeles Times - - CALENDAR - — Au­gust Brown

David Bowie is col­lab­o­rat­ing on “Lazarus,” a new play based on the 1976 film “The Man Who Fell to Earth,” which was it­self based on the novel by Wal­ter Te­vis.

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.
