Lazarus, the new musical co-written by David Bowie, doesn’t open till Dec. 7, but – Bowie groupies that we are – we managed to snag last-minute tickets to one of the sold-out previews at New York Theatre Workshop. While it’s too early to review the play, co-written by Enda Walsh (Once) and directed by Ivo van Hove, we can’t resist sharing some of what we’ve learned about this trippy production starring Michael C. Hall as the Bowie character from The Man Who Fell to Earth. Read ahead if you don’t mind a few spoilers.
The Man Who Fell to Earth
Sup film lovers? We’ve got some new things and old things for you this week, as usual. But this time around even our new film selections have a heavy gaze toward the past, whether it’s a 93-year-old woman who still reigns as a style sultan for women of all ages or a Mexican film that looks like it could have been made by Jean Luc Godard in 1968. Time is elastic y’all we know but stop wasting it sitting in front of your laptop and shell out a few bones to support your local independent Cini Mini and see reels on the big screen. It’s worth it, believe us.
