The David Bowie musical Lazarus is heading to London.
The highly anticipated show has been dubbed a must-see for Bowie fans, and has already had a sell-out run off Broadway in the US last year.
The UK production will open at the Kings Cross Theatre in London on 25 October and will run until 22 January 2017. It will be the first time any theatrical work from the late singer has been shown on the London stage.
Co-written by Bowie, Lazarus focuses on the central character Thomas Jerome Newton, a human-looking alien who comes to Earth and becomes disillusioned by life as he is unable to die.
