OPENING NIGHT SET FOR MAY 1st

New York, NY – Joey Parnes Productions and EMURSIVE (Jonathan Hochwald, Arthur Karpati, and Randy Weiner, principals) today announced casting and dates for The Public Theater's production of David Byrne and Alex Timbers' smash hit musical, Here Lies Love.  Performances will begin on April 14th with an opening night set for May 1st at The Public Theater's LuEsther Hall (425 Lafayette Street, New York City) for an open-ended commercial run.  The principal cast from the 2013 world premiere of Here Lies Lovereturns, including Ruthie Ann Miles and Jose Llana as Imelda and Ferdinand Marcos, and Conrad Ricamora as Ninoy Aquino.

Under the direction of Alex Timbers, Here Lies Love played a critically raved-about, sold-out run last year at the same space, which was extended by popular demand four times.  Here Lies Love was conceived by David Byrne, and features lyrics by Byrne, music by Byrne and Fatboy Slim, additional music by Tom Gandey and J Pardo, and choreography by Annie-B Parson.  Tickets for Here Lies Love will go on sale March 10thand range from $99-$139.  For more info, visit www.herelieslove.com beginning March 10th.

Here Lies Love features, in alphabetical order: Renee Albulario, Carol Angeli, Melody Butiu, Natalie Cortez, Debralee Daco, Jose Llana, Kelvin Moon Loh, Jaygee Macapugay, Jeigh Madjus, Ruthie Ann Miles, Maria-Christina Oliveras, Conrad Ricamora, George Salazar, and Janelle Velasquez.

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.

Here Lies Love is a 90-minute theatrical experience.  Set within a dance club atmosphere, audiences will stand and move with the actors.  Comfortable shoes and clothing are recommended.  Dancing is encouraged. 

"There was an overwhelming desire, both by the fans of this work and those of us who are committed to it, to get it back to New York this season," said producer Joey Parnes.  "We spent of a lot of time looking for the perfect space to remount it, so when its original home became available, it created a perfect opportunity."
