David Bowie's Stage Play Lazarus Film Finally Broadcast
Just before his death five years ago David Bowie created a stage play based around the life of Thomas Jerome Newton, the alien from “The Man Who Fell to Earth”. Previously unseen footage was streamed at the weekend.
The surreal musical was created by Bowie and writer Enda Walsh, featuring new versions of many of Bowie’s classic songs, and on a futuristic stage with multimedia effects. It was performed to sold-out crowds in New York in 2015 and London in 2016. It starred Michael C. Hall (“Dexter”) as Newton, who is trapped in an apartment and suffering from delusions some time after the events of the film.
“Inspired by the book, The Man Who Fell To Earth, Lazarus focuses on Thomas Newton, as he remains still on Earth - a ’man’ unable to die, his head soaked in cheap gin and haunted by a past love. We follow Newton during the course of a few days where the arrival of another lost soul - might set him finally free.”
Unfortunately most fans thought that this powerful work from one of the most creative stars of the 20th century was lost. However one of the London performances was videoed with multiple cameras and the edited version - a complex and immersive, but challenging finale to Bowie’s stellar career - was finally streamed at the weekend.
Researchers working on any documentaries about Bowie’s life and work will want to investigate this as part of their search for compelling and rare material.

Hail is frozen precipitation in the form of lumps of ice, or "stones" created when rain is pushed above the freezing level by a thunderstorm's updraft. Hail stones grow larger with subsequent passes until they become too heavy to be supported by the updraft and fall to earth. It's something the cinematographers for Prairie Pictures' StormStock know well.
