David Byrne and Fatboy Slim Musical will Have Its Debut on Broadway

‘Here Lies Love’ tells the story of the Philippine’s Imelda Marcos and the People Power Revolution

David Byrne and renowned DJ Fatboy Slim have prepared what they call a ‘disco-pop musical’ which will have its premiere on Broadway, later in 2023.

Here Lies Love tells the story of Imelda Marcos, the former first lady of the Philippines, and the People Power Revolution, which removed her and her husband, the dictator Ferdinand Marcos, from power in February 1986.

The Broadway production is developed and directed by Alex Timbers and choreographed by Annie-B Parson; producers on the project include Hal Luftig, Patrick Catullo, Diana DiMenna, Clint Ramos, and Jose Antonio Vargas. It’s set to make its Broadway debut in the summer of 2023.

Here Lies Love was born in the mid-2000s, with David Byrne and Fatboy Slim presenting music and other multimedia work from the show at Carnegie Hall in New York. Music from the performance was released as an album in 2010. The show was later adapted into a full-fledged theater production, with performances at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art in 2012, New York’s Public Theater in 2013, London’s National Theater in 2014, and the Seattle Repertory Theater in 2017.
