David Byrne and Fatboy Slim's immersive musical hit, Here Lies Love, has announced plans to present Friday late-night performances at 10:30pm beginning September 12 at The Public Theater's LuEsther Hall. In addition, the new fall schedule will include 7pm performances on Fridays, replacing the current summer Friday schedule of 5pm and 9:30pm performances.
With concept and lyrics by David Byrne, music by Byrne and Fatboy Slim, and additional music by Tom Gandey and J. Pardo, Here Lies Love examines the rise and fall of Imelda and Ferdinand Marcos in the Philippines during the upsurge of the People Power Revolution. Alex Timbers directs.
The show's creative team features Annie-B Parson (choreography), David Korins (scenic design), Clint Ramos (costume design), Justin Townsend (lighting design), M.L. Dogg and Cody Spencer (sound design), Peter Nigrini (projection design), Kimberly Grigsby (music supervisor), Justin Levine (collaborating music producer), and Matt Stine (music editor).
Here Lies Love opened in 2013 for a limited engagement at The Public Theater and currently plays an open-ended run there. The musical will also soon be playing at the National Theatre of London's Dorfman Theatre beginning September 30. Running through January 8, the production is scheduled to open October 13.
