There Ain’t No Party Like a Here Lies Love Album Listenin...

The Public Theater’s LuEsther Hall has transformed into one of NYC’s most desirable clubs for the run of David Byrne and Fatboy Slim’s award-winning musical Here Lies Love. The interactive show about Filipina First Lady Imelda Marcos (played by the brilliant Ruthie Ann Miles) is an electrifying experience you’ll want to share again and again with friends and loved ones; but if you’re not going to be a repeat attender, you’ll at least want to have the ridiculously fun cast album on constant rotation. BroadwayBox turned up the volume and let loose with Here Lies Love original cast recording, and here’s how we reacted to hearing the songs for the first time.

1. "American Troglodyte" (Ensemble)
