Dance, baby… and mind the tear gas | HERE LIES LOVE by David Byrne at the Public Theater features Imelda Marcos, disco queen

An annihilating, bone-rattling beat. But strangely for a show with musical genius David Byrne’s name on the marquee, not much in the way of memorable melody. Visually, a saturated parade of color, video, and a troupe of smiling, hip dancers. Audience moves around space standing, dancing. Fun. Dictatorship as disco.

$140 / $40 (rush) | 90 mins with no intermission

Open run

All power to the Public.
