Here Lies Love Tickets

LuEsther Hall at Joseph Papp Public Theater

Within a throbbing dance club atmosphere, David Byrne and Fatboy Slim deconstruct the astonishing journey of Filipina First Lady Imelda Marcos and her meteoric rise and subsequent descent into infamy. Here Lies Love is neither a period piece nor a biography, neither a play or a musical but a wholly immersive spectacle combining disco beats, adrenaline-fueled choreography, and a remarkable 360-degree scenic and video environment to go beyond Imelda’s near-mythic obsession with shoes and explore true questions of power and responsibility.

*Please note: This performance is set in a dance club atmosphere and audiences will stand and move along with the actors.

This show is closed.

Critics' Reviews

"...a completely immersive theater experience, lorded over by a DJ who provides some narration, teaches the occasional line dance, and spins the show's worldbeat dance tracks, which pulsate with groovy funk backbeats and island-friendly rhythmic rolls."

Review by Kyle Anderson from Entertainment Weekly

"A new musical that’s so exhilarating and such a great time that it’s easy to recommend it without hesitation."

Review by Joe Dziemianowicz from New York Daily News
