    Stars in the House

    The original 2013 Public Theater cast of David Byrne and Fatboy Slim's musical Here Lies Love reunited for a special episode of Stars in the House in honor of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, guest hosted by Jose Llana, who starred as Ferdinand Marcos. The daily series, usually hosted by Seth Rudetsky and James Wesley, benefits The Actors Fund. Joining Llana for the episode were original cast members Ruthie Ann Miles (Imelda), Conrad Ricamora (Aquino), Melody Butiu (Estrella), Kelvin Moon Loh (D.J.), and ensemble members Renée Albulario, Jeigh Madjus, and Maria-Christina Oliveras, as well as Jaygee Macapugay, who later assumed the role of Imelda.

    The 2014 Here Lies Love cast recording, released on Nonesuch Records, features performances by the original cast of the Obie Award–winning musical. Here Lies Love "will leave you walking on air," raved the Daily News. On the album, says Playbill: "The score is revealed to be as glitteringly faceted as the production itself." PopMatters calls it "exceedingly seductive." You can hear it here.

    David Byrne talks with hip-hop artist Open Mike Eagle on Fuse, a podcast from Bomb magazine. "Your music has been in my life for a very long time," Eagle says. "One of my earliest musical memories, when I was like five or six years old ... I think it’s like the second song I ever remember hearing was 'Burning Down the House' ... And, you know, 'Once in a Lifetime' is literally one of my favorite songs ever. Like if I were to make an objective top ten list, that song would be on there." You can hear their conversation here.
