After dazzling in Hedwig & The Angry Inch last year, Golden Globe winner Michael C. Hall returns to the stage in yet another marquee production. Playing at the New York Theatre Workshop, Lazarus is co-written by the dearly departed musical icon David Bowie and Tony-winner Enda Walsh (Once), and includes both re-worked material from Bowie's iconic catalogue alongside brand new music. Director Ivo van Hove (A View from the Bridge) has said that the new compositions sound like "classics".
Lazarus is based on the classic sci-fi novel The Man Who Fell to Earth by Walter Tevis. Bowie himself played the lead role in Nicolas Roeg's 1976 movie adaptation, starring as a hollow-eyed humanoid alien (this was during Bowie's Thin White Duke phase) who comes to the earth in search of water for his drought-ridden home planet.
Best known for his TV work in Dexter and Six Feet Under, Michael C. Hall has had a fantastic past couple of years on Broadway, starring in Will Eno's The Realistic Jones, and donning tights and heels for a stint as Hedwig. His most recent big screen appearance was in Jim Mickle's acclaimed thriller Cold in July.
While Lazarus marked Bowie's first time scoring a stage show, he was no stranger to the world of theatre. His 1979 performance in the Tony-winning The Elephant Man drew rapturous responses from the critics, while of course his myriad musical personas have all had a strong theatrical streak.
