DAVID BYRNE: Musical to Reopen, Cast Recording Coming
Ex-Talking Heads frontman David Byrne will re-launch his musical this spring.
Here Lies Love, based upon the life of former Filipino first lady Imelda Marcos, had its initial run in the spring of 2013. The new open-ended stint will officially launch March 31st at the Public Theater in New York.
Byrne says that a cast album will be out in time for the opening and adds, “It doesn’t sound like any cast album you’ve ever heard, with seven new songs since the last iteration of this project. The physical version will feature two CDs and a 52-page booklet.”
