    David Byrne & Fatboy Slim's "Here Lies Love" Begins Seattle Rep Run

    David Byrne and Fatboy Slim's musical Here Lies Love begins its two-month run at the Seattle Repertory Theatre tonight, with the official Opening Night set for April 20. Seattle Rep's Bagley Wright Theatre transforms into a vibrant dance party, where techno beats spin and tell 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.

    Directed Alex Timbers, Here Lies Love premiered at New York’s Public Theater in April 2013, where it won the Obie, Outer Critics Circle, and Lucille Lortel Awards and was extended four times, then returned to the Public in the spring of 2014. It opened at London's National Theatre later that year and was nominated for three Olivier Awards. You can watch a trailer from the original New York City production below.

    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.

    For tickets to the Seattle production, running through June 3, visit seattlerep.org, where you can also find details of several related community events and panel discussions with the cast in the coming weeks. David Byrne will also take part in a public conversation at the Seattle Museum of Pop Culture (MoPOP)'s Pop Conference on Opening Night, April 20.
