    David Bowie's musical Lazarus is headed to the London stage, following a sold-out run at the New York Theatre Workshop. The musical shares a name with one of the tracks in his Blackstar album, released just two days before his death from cancer on 10th January.

    Producer Robert Fox confirmed to the Telegraph that Lazarus will come to London “in the fullness of time”, with discussions already underway to find a suitable venue to cope with the demand from Bowie's dedicated fans wishing to see the singer's final show.

    Lazarus is based on the character, Thomas Newton from The Man Who Fell to Earth, the science fiction novel by Walter Tevis, about an extraterrestrial who crash lands on Earth seeking a way to ship water to his planet, which is suffering from a severe drought. Bowie famously took on the starring role in the 1976 film adaptation of the same name, directed by Nicolas Roeg.



    By David Bowie and Enda Walsh (Once), Lazarus features songs specially composed for this production by Bowie as well as new arrangements of previously recorded songs. Directed by Olivier Award winner Ivo van Hove (A View From The Bridge - Young Vic & Wyndham's), with designs by Jan Versweyveld.
