David Byrne on his musical Here Lies Love

'Some years later, I read in a newspaper that, in the late 1970s and early 1980s, Madame Marcos had a mirrorball installed in one floor of her New York townhouse, and that she loved going to dance clubs….

I went to see this tonight and was mesmerised by the presence of David Byrne in the audience, joining in with the singing and dancing.

It’s worth seeing and is on at the National till January.
