    David Byrne and Fatboy Slim's "Here Lies Love" Nominated for Three Olivier Awards Including Best New Musical

    Congratulations to David Byrne and Fatboy Slim's musical Here Lies Love, which has been nominated for three Olivier Awards, the most prestigious UK theatrical event: Best New Musical, Outstanding Achievement in Music, and Best Theatre Choreographer for Annie-B Parson. The 2015 Olivier Awards will be presented in a ceremony at the Royal Opera House in London on Sunday, April 12, with a television highlights broadcast on ITV later that evening.

    The London production of Here Lies Love at the National Theatre's Dorfman Theatre opened last October to great critical acclaim. The musical earned five stars in Time Out and the Daily Mail, which called it "revolutionary," and four stars in the Independent, Daily Telegraph, Evening Standard, and the Times. Channel 4 News called it "extraordinary." Here Lies Love won the 2014 London Evening Standard Theatre Awards' Beyond Theatre award for "pushing the boundaries of musicals."

    Here Lies Love, which tells the story of former Filipina First Lady Imelda Marcos, retracing her meteoric rise to power and subsequent descent into infamy and disgrace at the end of the People Power Revolution, premiered at New York’s Public Theater in April of 2013, was extended four times, and returned to the Public in the spring of 2014. Nonesuch Records released the original cast album in 2014 and an all-star album of songs from Here Lies Love in 2010. To pick up copies of both, head to the Nonesuch Store, where CD orders include a download of the complete album at checkout.
