David Bowie's musical 'Lazarus' is heading to London in October

David Bowie's last months were marked by an astonishing burst of creativity: as well as his haunting final album 'Blackstar', he created off-Broadway musical 'Lazarus'. A weird, avant-garde sequel to his classic 1977 film 'The Man Who Fell to Earth', it starred Michael C Hall of 'Dexter' fame as Thomas Newton, the alien corrupted by humanity who Bowie had played so memorably in the film.

Directed by the great Ivo van Hove, a transfer to London was inevitable – it will open in a purpose-built space in the King's Cross Theatre this November, with previews starting in October. Hall will reprise his lead role; New York reviews suggest we can expect a somewhat baffling but mostly brilliant night that features Bowie songs aplenty – but perhaps not the ones you expect.

'Lazarus' is at the King's Cross Theatre Oct 25-Jan 22.
