Lazarus is a musical with music and lyrics composed by David Bowie and collaboratively written by Bowie and Enda Walsh. It was also inspired by the novel The Man Who Fell to Earth by Walter Tevis.

The story focuses on Thomas Newton, an alien, who remains on earth, unable to die. The musical follows him during the course of a few days, waiting for the arrival of another lost soul which might finally set him free. David Bowie's most well-known songs, including Changes, Heroes and Absolute Beginners, are all performed as well as four songs that were especially written for the musical.

Lazarus has enjoyed sell-out seasons in New York and London and will now be performed for a limited time in Melbourne -18 May to June 9, so hurry and book your tickets here, many days are already sold out.
