A filmed performance from the London run of David Bowie and Enda Walsh’s LAZARUS, starring Michael C. Hall and Beetlejuice star Sophia Anne Caruso, will stream on Dice.fm January 8-10, to mark both Bowie’s birthday – and the fifth anniversary of his death. The film will be available for three showings only in multiple time zones, and tickets cost from £16.
“WILD, FANTASTICAL, EYE-POPPING. A SURREALISTIC TOUR DE FORCE.” – Rolling Stone
Producers Robert Fox and RZO Entertainment Inc are making available the London production of LAZARUS, captured live on stage in 2016.
Inspired by the book, The Man Who Fell To Earth by Walter Tevis (“The Queen’s Gambit”), Lazarus focuses on Thomas Newton as he remains still on Earth – a man unable to die, his head soaked in cheap gin and haunted by a past love. We follow Newton over the course of a few days where the arrival of another lost soul might finally set him free.
LAZARUS includes songs from Bowie’s iconic catalogue as well as brand-new music written for the stage.
Michael C Hall (“Dexter”, “Six Feet Under”) stars as Newton, the character famously portrayed by David Bowie in the 1976 screen adaptation of The Man Who Fell To Earth directed by Nicolas Roeg. LAZARUS co-stars Sophia Anne Caruso (“Beetlejuice” on Broadway) and the production is directed by Ivo van Hove (“All About Eve”, “Network” and “A View From The Bridge”).
LAZARUS broke box office records when it played a strictly limited, sold-out run in New York in 2015. The production then moved to the King’s Cross Theatre in 2016 where it played a sold-out 13-week run.
This live-streamed event will be available for three performances only in multiple time zones (GMT, AEDT, EST, PST) from Friday 8 to Sunday 10 January 2021. In the UK the shows will start at 7.00pm GMT on 8 and 9 January, and at 3.00pm GMT on 10 January.
Additional donations are encouraged and will be shared between two charities – Theatre Artists Fund and Help Musicians.
Full details on how to access the show will be available in the DICE app and sent by email 30 minutes before the stream is due to start. For a full list of FAQs please visit the following link: https://bit.ly/lazarus-faqs
