Buy Tickets For Here Lies LoveBuy Tickets

A brand-new theatre experience!

A polarising figure, Imelda Marcos's life of luxury and abandon is well documented, as is her enormous shoe collection. Here Lies Love takes a closer look at the former Philippine First Lady and her husband, from her poverty stricken upbringing to the whirlwind romance that saw them marry after 11 days and their subsequent rise to extreme power and the lengths they went to to hold onto it before a disastrous fall from grace!

Nearly a decade in the making, David Byrne and Fat Boy Slim's incredible new musical transforms the theatre into a storming nightclub, evoking the audacious and outrageous life of one of the 20th Century's most infamous women.
