Lazarus - The Complete Book and Lyrics
Published by Nick Hern Books
Large Mixed Cast
"I'm a dying man who can't die"
Thomas Newton came to Earth seeking water for his drought-ridden planet
Years later he's still stranded here, soaked in cheap gin and haunted by a past love
But the arrival of another lost soul brings one last chance of freedom ...
Incorporating some of Bowie's most iconic songs, Lazarus brings the story of Thomas Newton to its devastating conclusion
It was premiered at New York Theatre Workshop in 2015 and transferred to London in November 2016
"Wild, fantastical, eye-popping. A surrealistic tour de force" ~ Rolling Stone
"Ice-bolts of ecstasy shoot like novas through the fabulous muddle and murk of Lazarus, the great-sounding, great-looking and mind-numbing new musical built around songs by David Bowie" ~ Ben Brantley New York Times
