Talking Heads front man David Byrne and Fatboy Slim plan to put their musical “Here Lies Love” on a Broadway stage this summer.
The show charts the rise and fall of Philippine ex-first lady Imelda Marcos.
The former beauty queen-turned-dictator’s wife loved to dance, converted the roof of one of her Manila palaces into a nightclub and hit discos regularly in the ’70’s.
Byrne’s 90-minute show about Marcos’ rags-to-riches-to-exile journey played off-Broadway in 2013.
