Here Lies Love at The Public Theatre

July 7, 2013

here liesJust amazing! Within a pulsating dance club atmosphere, David Byrne and Fatboy Slim deconstruct the astonishing journey of Filipina First Lady Imelda Marcos retracing her meteoric rise to power and subsequent descent into infamy and disgrace at the end of the People Power Revolution. HERE LIES LOVE is neither a period piece nor a biography, neither a play nor a traditional musical but an immersive theatrical event combining songs influenced by four decades of dance music, adrenaline-fueled choreography, and a remarkable 360-degree scenic and video environment to go beyond Imelda’s near-mythic obsession with shoes and explore the tragic consequences of the abuse of power.

You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, YOU WILL THINK! We really enjoyed Here Lies Love. It starts out very much like a party but there is a history lesson in there that you won’t soon forget!

With amazing costumes, choreography, actual transcripts and that SOUNDTRACK! Here Lies Love takes you in and doesn’t let you go. We will see it again and again. This is , without a doubt, headed to Broadway, but with its movable theatre performance space, it will be interesting to see how they pull this off. The actors really bring authentic performances to this stunning piece and you experience the whole show as they sometimes move in and dance and sing directly to audience members. Sometimes it is hard to distinguish between the actors and the patrons! Get down to the Public Theatre and experience Here Lies Love before it’s too late!

Cheers!
