Andrew Scott, Fatboy Slim and La Roux attend opening night of Here Lies Love

David Byrne and Fatboy Slim’s new musical experience is now playing in the new Dorfman theatre.

The new NT Dorfman officially opened its doors on Monday with the UK premiere of disco musical Here Lies Love. The show premiered at the Public Theatre in New York last year and sees the audience invited to join in with choreographed dance routines.

The show follows Imelda Marcos, the former Philippine first lady, as she regresses from ultimate power to infamy and disgrace.

The show is directed by Alex Timbers, who directed it on Broadway where his credits also include Rocky and Peter and the Starcatcher.

Leading the cast is Natalie Mendoza, previously seen in Cats and Les Misérables, as well as Spiderman: Turn off the Dark. She recently told WhatsOnStage that Here Lies Love is "theatre like no one has experienced it before".

Here Lies Love, runs at the NT Dorfman until 8 January 2015.
