Esper joins a cast that includes Tony Award nominee Cristin Milioti and Michael C. Hall.

The New York Theatre Workshop's world-premiere production of acclaimed playwright Enda Walsh's new show, which features music composed by Bowie, will begin previews in November (15).

The musical is inspired by Walter Tevis' bestselling novel The Man Who Fell to Earth, which follows the fortunes of an alien who comes to Earth seeking water for his dying planet. Bowie starred in director Nick Roeg's 1976 movie adaptation.
