NEW YORK, N.Y. - David Byrne's splashy disco musical "Here Lies Love" is coming back to the Public Theater — but with a twist.

The Talking Heads frontman told fans Tuesday that his show about Imelda Marcos, the former first lady of the Philippines, will return to the same space in the Public's home in March, but this time as a commercial venture. It will have an open-ended run.

The poppy, techno score is laced with Byrne's dreamy style and features additional beats provided by Fatboy Slim. The audience — the space fits less than 200 — is forced to stand, move around or dance.

The theatre is transformed into a beaming night club with strobe lights, flat-screen displays, wall-to-wall digital projections and a DJ while the actors jump around on platforms.
