David Bowie has bestowed yet another gift: Lazarus will grace Australian theatres in 2019

The late David Bowie has bestowed yet another gem upon us that will make its Australian debut next May.

Lazarus was part of the late musician’s final projects alongside Blackstar. The play made its debut in New York in 2015 to rapturous reviews, and is set to make its Australian premiere in Melbourne next year.

David Bowie has graced us with his presence yet again. The late musician’s play Lazarus will feature 18 Bowie songs, such as Changes and Heroes, when it makes its Australin debut next May.

Expect to hear songs like Changes and Heroes, which “was just spine tingling,” according to executive producer Rachel D. Taylor.

“Lazarus was a dream come true for David Bowie. For decades he had spoken about writing a show, and when it was announced off-Broadway in 2015 the entire season sold out in a few hours,” she shared.

The play will feature 18 of the musician’s songs and was inspired by the Walter Tevis novel The Man Who Fell to Earth – Bowie starred in the 1976 version of the film.

The Production Company will stage the play in Melbourne’s Playhouse between May and June 2019. There’s already a waitlist to get tickets to the show, so make sure to get your name on it quick-smart.

Stay tuned for ticket and cast details – all will be revealed on the 19th of February next year and we can’t wait!
