London, May 17 : Glam rock legend David Bowie has given permission for a stage show based around his mighty catalogue of classics.
Bowie will team up with director Peter Schaufuss to make his "The Man Who Fell To Earth".
The rocker had played an alien on earth who came to get water for his dying planet in the 1976 movie.
"David has been approached many times with a view of turning his songs into a stage production but he has always said no," The Sun quoted a source, as saying.
"He guards his legacy carefully and didn't want a cheesy show tarnishing it.
"But it was the involvement of Peter that really swung him," the source added.
Schaufuss is a legendary figure in the theatre world and is widely regarded as one of the best choreographers of his time.
