Q Magazine - - Musical -

Lazarus was David Bowie's fi­nal project, first staged in New York in late 2015. This will be the Aus­tralian pre­miere of this ground­break­ing mu­si­cal. Lazarus fea­tures 18 David Bowie songs in­clud­ing Changes, He­roes and Ab­so­lute Be­gin­ners. In­spired by the novel The Man Who Fell to Earth by Wal­ter Te­vis - the movie also starred David Bowie - it fo­cuses on New­ton as he re­mains on earth, un­able to die. We fol­low him dur­ing the course of a few days where the ar­rival of an­other lost soul might fi­nally set him free.

Pub­lic are now in­vited to join the wait-list to be one of the first in line for ticket in­for­ma­tion at www.lazarus­the­mu­si­cal.com.au

Ex­ec­u­tive Pro­ducer Rachel D Tay­lor said “Lazarus was a dream come true for David Bowie, for decades he had spo­ken about writ­ing a show, and when it was an­nounced off-Broad­way in 2015 the en­tire sea­son sold out in a few hours. When I read the script I found it in­cred­i­bly mov­ing, es­pe­cially know­ing that it was one of his fi­nal projects. And see­ing songs like He­roes and Changes come out of the story was just spine tin­gling. It's rare to find a mu­si­cal like Lazarus.”

Chair­man Jeanne Pratt said “I am so ex­cited that The Pro­duc­tion Com­pany will bring this ground break­ing show to Mel­bourne. I think it's go­ing to be a great event for Mel­bourne and a must see for lovers of David Bowie and mu­si­cals alike.”

Lazarus will be staged for a strictly lim­ited sea­son in the Play­house at Arts Cen­tre Mel­bourne in May / June 2019. Lazarus is proudly pre­sented by ar­range­ment with Robert Fox and Jones / Tin­toretto En­ter­tain­ment.
