★ Here Lies Love: impressive, but weak on story

We went to see the David Byrne / Fatboy Slim musical “Here Lies Love” this weekend at Seattle Repertory Theatre. As a piece of spectacle, it was a tour de force, a truly impressive, immersive production with an outstanding cast. The story left a lot to be desired, though. This Seattle Globalist article gets at how a lot of the uglier sides of the Marcoses and the revolution in the Philippines were glossed over in the production.
