Back in 2010, David Byrne and Fatboy Slim, teamed up in 2010 for Here Lies Love, an album about fomer Filipina First Lady Imelda Marcos with a different singer on each track (including St. Vincent, Shara Worden, Kate Pierson, Sharon Jones, Florence Welch, and more). They’ve now brought in director Alex Timbers to direct a Here Lies Love musical, which like the album, is about Imelda Marcos. The musical will premiere as part of the Public Theater‘s 2012-2013 season from April 2 – May 5, 2013.
