Fatboy Slim musical opening in London

Los Angeles: David Byrne and Fatboy Slim`s musical `Here Lies Love` will open in London later this year.

The musical - which is based on the pair`s 2010 album of the same name - will premiere at the National Theatre in October, reportedly.

The production tells the life story of Filipino leader Imelda Marcos, and is described as a 360-degree "immersive" experience.
`Here Lies Love` originally opened at New York City`s Public Theatre in April 2013 and was later given numerous extensions, before closing to make way for a new production.

It returned to the venue for a second run, which began on May 1. Director Alex Timbers said that the London production will use an alternative cast, allowing the New York production to run as normal.

"We`ll reopen one of the National`s spaces. It used to be called the Cottesloe, and it`s going to be called the Dorfman now," he said.

`Here Lies Love` is set within a dance club atmosphere, allowing the audience to stand and move with the actors.
