Fatboy Slim and former Talking Heads frontman David Byrne will collaborate on working on a musical about ex-Philippines first lady Imelda Marcos


Fatboy Slim is collaborating with Talking Heads frontman David Byrne to write a musical about former Philippine first lady Imelda Marcos, to be shown next March at the Adelaide Festival in Australia. Titled "Here Lies Love" the musical will focus on Imelda's love for music and nightclubs.

Speaking about the project, an Adelaide Festival spokesman explained "She loved the nightlife in all parts of the world, and in New York at Studio 54, so much so that she installed a disco in her NYC townhouse. It was a non-stop party, featuring politicians, arms dealers, financiers, artists, musicians and the international jet set."

Marianne Weems will direct all the music, which was written by Byrne and Fatboy Slim.
