Director Agnieszka Smoczynska is combining her loves of science-fiction and David Bowie in a musical. And we are so here for it. With the working-title Deranged, we can already bet it’s going to be iconic just like the late-great entertainer himself.

Smoczynska blended dark fantasy and ’80s rock-and-roll before to create on-stage magic. Her newest project, The Lure, does just that! The horror musical follows the lives of mermaids caught up in rock-and-roll. And it acquired a slew of rave reviews.

And if Deranged is anything like it, we know we’re going to be in for a treat.

The David Bowie-inspired musical is officially in development!

But it gets better. Smoczynska shared mind-blowing deets about the musical, and it sounds a lot like Bowie’s 1995 conceptual album 1.Outside.


It’s definitely creative and against the grain — both of which represent the very essence of the late icon.
