Bowie is bringing an adaption of his 1976 movie "The Man Who Fell To Earth" to the New York Theater Workshop this winter.

Michael C. Hall, star of Six Feet Under and Dexter, was a huge success in last year's revival of "Hedwig and the Angry Inch". He's now going to star in "Lazarus", a science-fiction musical by David Bowie and "Once" playwright Edna Walsh, directed by Ivo van Hove.

The play will feature new music from Bowie, as well as new arrangements of classic Bowie tunes.

"Lazarus" is an adaptation of the sci-fi novel "The Man Who Fell To Earth" by Walter Tevis, which was already adapted into a film starring David Bowie as an alien who comes to Earth looking for water to take back to his home world. Michael C. Hall will be playing the same part Bowie played in the film (it all comes full circle). "Lazarus" is scheduled to begin preview performances on November 8 of this year, with opening night set for December 7, 2015.
