Cast Announced for Here Lies Love
Date Posted: 28/07/14
Here Lies Love - a new musical charting the life of Imelda Marcos - is set to grace the London stage from October.
Natalie Mendoza, who is best known for her role in Hotel Babylon, will take the lead, while Mark Bautista will play her on-stage husband, former Philippine president Ferdinand Marcos.
The production has already had a successful run at the Public Theater in Broadway, with the music by David Byrne and Fatboy Slim getting audiences on their feet and dancing along with the show.
Now, the National Theatre is bringing it to London, with the musical playing at the Dorfman Theatre from Monday October 13th until Thursday January 8th.
Here Lies Love tells the extraordinary tale of the former Philippine first lady Imelda Marcos, and her incredible rise to fame, followed by her descent into infamy and disgrace.
The production will be performed on a 360 degree stage, so anyone who plans to see the show on a London theatre break is advised to wear comfortable clothing and shoes, as the standing audience will move with the actors.
