Seating chart & directions
Within a throbbing dance club atmosphere, David Byrne and Fatboy Slim deconstruct the astonishing journey of Filipina First Lady Imelda Marcos and her meteoric rise and subsequent descent into infamy. This wholly immersive spectacle combines disco beats, adrenaline-fueled choreography, and a remarkable 360-degree scenic and video environment to go beyond Imelda’s near-mythic obsession with shoes and explore true questions of power and responsibility.
Directed by two-time Obie Award-winner Alex Timbers (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, Peter and the Starcatcher), HERE LIES LOVE is neither a period piece nor a mere biography, neither a play or a musical, but rather a unique theatrical experience that raises the pulses and quickens the blood - all filtered through the remarkable vision of David Byrne, one of the great American artists of the last half-century.
HERE LIES LOVE is a world premiere, written by David Byrne
Music by David Byrne and Fatboy Slim
