Full casting has been announced for the European premiere of Lazarus, the musical by Enda Walsh and the David Bowie, which transfers from New York.
As previously announced Michael C Hall, Michael Esper and Sophia Anne Caruso are all reprising their roles – Newton, Valentine and Girl respectively – from the sell-out New York production.
Joining them will be Amy Lennox (Kinky Boots) as Elly, Gabrielle Brooks (The Book Of Mormon), Sydnie Christmas (Kick Ass 2) and Maimuna Memon (The Busker’s Opera) as Teenage Girls, Richard Hansell (A View From The Bridge) as Zach, Jamie Muscato (Bend It Like Beckham) as Ben, Tom Parsons (Once) as Michael and Julie Yammanee (Priscilla Queen Of The Desert) as Maemi.
Featuring songs from Bowie’s iconic catalogue along with new music written for the stage, Lazarus is inspired by Walter Tevis’ novel The Man Who Fell To Earth, and follows a man, Thomas Newton, who perpetually remains on Earth, unable to die, yet seeks freedom from this fate – a freedom which the arrival of another lost soul might finally grant him.
Directed by Olivier Award-winner Ivo van Hove, the much anticipated London production will take place in a brand new 900-seater venue at King’s Cross Theatre.
Lazarus runs from 25 October 2016 until 22 January 2017 at the King’s Cross Theatre.
