David Bowie's hit off-Broadway musical, Lazarus, is confirmed to be coming to Australia in 2019. 

The Production Company has announced the musical, one of the Bowie's last works before he died in January 2016, will hit Melbourne's Arts Centre Playhouse from May next year. 

Chairman Jeanne Pratt said “I am so excited that The Production Company will bring this ground breaking show to Melbourne. 

"I think it’s going to be a great event for Melbourne and a must see for lovers of David Bowie and musicals alike.”

The Music's Dan Cribb saw Lazarus in New York just days after the music icon's death and called it "an important piece of history".

"The two-hour performance grappled at what makes us human, with its heartbreaking take on love, loss, obsession and death," Cribb wrote. 

"This won't be his last theatre stint, and for David Bowie, it did more than prove he was producing his best work until the end."

Lazarus is inspired by the novel, The Man Who Fell To Earth,  which was adapted into a film in 1976, with Bowie starring in the lead role. 

The film's director, Nicolas Roeg, passed away at the age of 90 last month.
