The Production Company opens its 2019 Season with the David Bowie and Enda Walsh musical, Lazarus.
Lazarus was the final project of David Bowie. First staged in New York in late 2015, Lazarus has enjoyed sell out seasons in New York and London. This will be the Australian premiere of the ground-breaking musical.
Featuring 18 David Bowie songs including Changes, Heroes and Absolute Beginners, Lazarus is inspired by the novel The Man Who Fell to Earth by Walter Tevis – and the movie which also starred David Bowie. The story focuses on Thomas Newton, an alien, as he remains on earth, unable to die. We follow him during the course of a few days where the arrival of another lost soul might finally set him free.
The “Brilliant” (The Age) Chris Ryan, whose performance as Monty Navarro in A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder wowed Melbourne last year, takes on the lead role of Newton. Iconic singer iOTA also joins the cast in the role of Valentine. The distinguished creative team is headed by Director Michael Kantor and Musical Director Jethro Woodward.
Critics called Lazarus “A must see” (Daily Mirror), “Wild, fantastical, eye-popping" (Rolling Stone), “A spectacular Bowie fantasy" (The Guardian) and “David Bowie's parting gift to the world" (The Independent).
During this season of Lazarus, Art Centre Melbourne’s The Barre transforms into The Bowie Barre. As a ticket holder you will be entitled to a 15% discount* on food and beverages and enjoy specially formulated cocktails inspired by David Bowie such as spiced blueberries with Schelvispekel spiced brandy – reportedly David Bowie’s favourite drink, specially imported from Holland. The Bowie Barre offers the perfect atmosphere to start or finish your evening featuring music centred around Bowie and friends of the time.
