Ought To Be Clowns tackles a trio of Broadway cast recordings in the shape of Cole Porter’s The New Yorkers, Kiss Me, Kate! and Beetlejuice.
It’s no secret that I’m a big Ivo van Hove fan, I’ve been to New York and Amsterdam several times to see his work as regular readers will know, so booking for his latest show to hit London – Lazarus – was a no-brainer.
Ahead of its hugely anticipated European premiere in a brand new 900-seater venue at King’s Cross Theatre, London, full casting for David Bowie and Enda Walsh’s Lazarus is announced today.
David Bowie made his last public appearance at the opening night of his Off-Broadway musical Lazarus on 7 December 2015. The album on which it is based, Blackstar, was released on his 69th birthday on 8 January 2016; he died two days later. The title song begins with the words: “Look up here, I’m in Heaven”.
