NEW YORK (AP) - “Dexter” star Michael C. Hall is stepping into David Bowie’s old shoes in an off-Broadway musical.

The New York Theatre Workshop said Tuesday that Hall will star in the musical “Lazarus” this winter by Bowie and “Once” playwright Enda Walsh.

The show is inspired by Walter Tevis’ 1963 novel, “The Man Who Fell to Earth.” The new musical will have new and old Bowie songs. It will be directed by Ivo van Hove.

Hall will play Thomas Newton, who Bowie portrayed in a 1976 film version.

Hall recently portrayed the title character in the Broadway production of “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” and starred in Will Eno’s Broadway production of “The Realistic Jones.”

“Lazarus” begins previews on Nov. 18.
