Lazarus was the final project of David Bowie. First staged in New York in late 2015, this will be the Australian premiere of the ground-breaking musical.
Featuring 18 David Bowie songs including Changes, Heroes and Absolute Beginners, Lazarus is inspired by the novel The Man Who Fell To Earth by Walter Tevis – and the movie which also starred David Bowie. The story 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.
Critics called Lazarus ‘A MUST SEE’ (Daily Mirror), “WILD, FANTASTICAL, EYE-POPPING’ (Rolling Stone), “A SPECTACULAR BOWIE FANTASY” (The Guardian) and “DAVID BOWIE’S PARTING GIFT TO THE WORLD” (The Independent).
