Michael Loccisano/Getty Images for Tribeca Film FestivalLazarus, the stage production co-written by the late David Bowie and Once playwright Enda Walsh that debuted off-Broadway last November, will premiere at London’s Kings Cross Theatre on October 25. The project was inspired by the 1963 Walter Tevis novel The Man Who Fell to Earth, and focuses on the character Thomas Newton, whom Bowie famously portrayed in the 1976 film version of the book.

Dexter and Six Feet Under actor Michael C. Hall, who starred in the New York City production, will reprise his role for the London version of the play. The show features a variety of classic Bowie tunes as well as the song “Lazarus,” which appeared on Bowie’s 2016 studio album, Blackstar.

Ivo van Hove, who directed the play’s off-Broadway run, also will direct the London production. Performances of Lazarus are scheduled through January 22, 2017.

You can purchase tickets for the London show now at LazarusMusical.com.

As Rolling Stone points out, Bowie’s last public appearance was at Lazarus‘ November 18, 2015, off-Broadway opening. The sold-out production ran until January 20 of this year, 10 days after David died.
