Here Lies Love

Lately, I've been writing a lot about theater, but with the 2013 Tony Awards coming up, it's tough to resist the fresh crop of brilliant shows. Case in point: Here Lies Love at the Public Theater. This production is actually off-Broadway—which means it's not eligible for a Tony—but, in my opinion, it's the production that most deserves to win one. 

It's the story of Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos, the former president and first lady of the Philippines. The music (yes, it's a musical!) is written by Fat Boy Slim and David Byrne. Walk through the doors, and be prepared to be captivated by her story—and invited to sing and dance on stage.

Get a sneak peek at the music by listening to one of the songs here. Then, do everything possible to snag a ticket to this show now!
