Throwback Thursday: 1/3/81 Bowie Does Broadway

Tonight in my Box Set feature, we look back on some David Bowie history. The Thin White Duke spent over 5 months studying and rehearsing for hist first and only lead role in a Broadway Play.

 He turned in what became a Tony Award-Winning portrayal of "John Merrick-The Elephant Man".  It was an enormous commitment that had Bowie performing six nights a week, and three additional matinees per week. This rigorous schedule began in September, 1980 and wrapped on this date January 3, 1981.
