Here Lies Love

David Byrne and Fatboy Slim's dance-music opera about the ambition and arrogance of the Philippines' former First Lady Imelda Marcos is a funkier cousin to Evita. Byrne's lyrics are built around Marcos' own words, and the all-star cast (Cyndi Lauper! Tori Amos!) belts them with relish. — Douglas Wolk
