10 Things We've Learned About David Bowie's New Musical, Lazarus

lazarus_nytw_v2_1000sqLazarus, 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.

Major Tom Is ‘Maybe’ in David Bowie’s New Video, Says Director Johan Renck

The video for David Bowie’s new single, “★” (pronounced “Blackstar”), is now up on YouTube, but those who made it to Nitehawk this afternoon to watch it on the big screen got a special treat. And not just the free ★-branded boxes of popcorn. After the screening of the 10-minute mindfuck featuring human scarecrows, sorcery, and a blindfolded Bowie, its director, Johan Renck, fielded questions from Noisey editor-in-chief Eric Sundermann.

If you want to see the short film accompanying David Bowie’s new song, “★,” when it premieres at Nitehawk on Thursday, there’s still one time slot that isn’t sold out. But if you want to see the new play, Lazarus, co-written by Bowie and featuring original songs, it won’t be so easy. The last batch of tickets sold out soon after we gave you the heads up about them (after all, the New York Theatre Workshop has a capacity of around 200), and there are just four tickets on StubHub: two for $600 each, and two for $1,000 each.

It’ll drop on Bowie’s 69th birthday, January 8.

Week in Film: Blue Tops Filming Blue Tops and Kidnapping at the Hands of Crazed Makeup Man

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.

Labyrinth

Just Labrynth. You know you love it. And if you don’t know what I’m talking about, then you should probably go to this screening for reals. Because this is cultural knowledge you need—complete with David Bowie in full weirdo (read: Goblin King Jareth) regalia and Jennifer Connelly as a girl on the brink of womanhood. Also puppets. Lots of puppets.
