David Byrne and the original cast of Here Lies Love will perform a one-time only special benefit concert in support of the people of the Philippines in the wake of Super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan). All proceeds from the special show on November 25 at Terminal 5 will go to support Doctors Without Borders/M?decins Sans Fronti?res (MSF) relief efforts in the Philippines. "The show is about the resiliency of the Philippine people??it couldn't be more timely," says Byrne. "Upon hearing about this tragedy the cast contacted me about doing a show to raise money for relief efforts. Most of our cast is Filipino, and all of us feel the same way. It's personal for all of us. We all dropped whatever we were doing and this concert version of the show will happen on November 25 at Terminal 5 here in New York." "The tragedy of Typhoon Haiyan that has engulfed the Philippines has been heartrending for all of us," said Public Theater Artistic Director Oskar Eustis. "Here Lies Love made us feel a deep connection to the Philippine people, and to Tacloban specifically. Now we have a chance to make that connection matter. We hope this concert will raise money, raise awareness, and provide support for those who have lost so much."

Directed by Alex Timbers, the theatrical production of Here Lies Love premiered at The Public Theater in New York in April, was extended four times and won an Outer Critics Circle Award, an Obie Award, Drama Desk Awards for Outstanding Music, Lighting Design, and Projection Design, and two Theatre World Awards. The benefit show will feature the cast performing all songs from the acclaimed musical in the original order.
