Michael C Hall and Sophia Anne Caruso

Lazarus is inspired by the novel The Man Who Fell To Earth and acts as a sequel to the story by Walter Trevis.

The musical focuses on the lost soul of Thomas Newton as he remains on earth, unable to die and haunted by a past love. The story follows Newton over the course of a few days when another lost soul may help him break free.

Lazarus will be directed by Edna Walsh and features music and lyrics by the late David Bowie, who also starred in the film production of The Man Who Fell To Earth in 1976.

The show first premiered at the New York Theatre Workshop in November 2015 and was one of the last works Bowie completed before his death earlier this year.

Tickets for the musical sold out in record time and the London premiere will star Michael C Hall, Michael Esper and Sophia Anne Caruso, who will reprise their roles from the New York production.

Full casting will be announced at a later date.

Groups of 12 or more can benefit from ten per cent discount on Tuesday and Wednesday shows.

Lazarus will run until January 2017.

The Man Who Fell To Earth

The Man Who Fell To Earth is the prequel to Lazarus and the science fiction novel is about an extra-terrestrial who lands on earth in search of a way to move his people from his home planet — which is suffering from a severe drought — to earth.

The story spanned a 1987 television adaption as well as the 1976 film by Nicolas Reog, and the film went on to gain a strong cult following, most notably for David Bowie in what was his first starring film role.

The film boasts a cameo from real-life astronaut Jim Lovell, who was the commander of the Apollo 13 mission.
