LONDON (AP) — The David Bowie musical “Lazarus” is headed to London, with star Michael C. Hall on board.

Producers said Monday that the show will run at the King’s Cross Theatre from Oct. 25 until Jan. 22, 2017.

Bowie, who died in January, wrote “Lazarus” with Irish playwright Enda Walsh, based on the science fiction novel, “The Man Who Fell to Earth.” Bowie starred in a 1976 film adaptation of the story of an alien stranded after coming to Earth on a rescue mission for his dying planet.

The show, directed by Ivo van Hove, opened at the New York Theatre Workshop in November.

Hall will reprise the lead role of Thomas Newton in the London production, which also features his U.S. co-stars Michael Esper and Sophia Anne Caruso.
