“Rebel Rebel: The Many Lives of David Bowie” is the ultimate journey through the many lives and sounds of David Bowie. Created and directed by Paul Horton, president of Century Artists Management Agency LLC and Quinn Lemley (“Ultimate Queen Celebration” starring Marc Martel, “Burlesque to Broadway” and “Rita Hayworth - The Heat Is On!”), this theatrical concert transports audiences to the world of Bowie with some of the greatest songs of rock and roll ever written: “Changes,” “Heroes,” “Space Oddity,” “Starman” and “Fame.” Direct from New York City, this performance with three performers captures the otherworldly energy of Bowie’s greatest characters Ziggy Stardust, the Thin White Duke and Iconic Bowie backed by a full rock band.
Tim Young is the Iconic Bowie. A Grammy Award-winning vocalist, actor and songwriter from Ronkonkoma, Young made his Broadway debut with the original cast of “Next To Normal,” and went on to join the original casts of David Bowie’s “Lazarus” and Broadway’s “Dear Evan Hansen,” the Off-Broadway play “Afterglow,” and worked as a vocalist for the film “The Greatest Showman.” Young also appeared as Pippin in “Fosse Verdon” on FX, and released an original version of “Corner of the Sky” from the musical “Pippin,” with Tony- and Grammy-winner Alex Lacamoire on Atlantic Records. Young has won two Grammy Awards as a vocalist on the Grammy-winning soundtracks for “Dear Evan Hansen” and “The Greatest Showman.” He released his first creative project this summer as the co-composer and executive music producer of “Stuck,” an original musical film and accompanying soundtrack starring Ashanti and Giancarlo Esposito. Young is currently recording his first solo album, with the single “Supernova” to be released this fall.
Sam Given is Ziggy Stardust. A New York City based performer, Given’s recent credits include “Rent” at the Hollywood Bowl, “Vinyl” on HBO, “The GetDown” on Netflix, and the Courtesan in the Off-Broadway production of “The Boys From Syracuse.” When not traveling the country as Ziggy Stardust, Given performs his one-man show, “Millie Grams: Make Your Own Kind of Music” in New York City.

He can also be seen in Amanda Lepore’s music video, “The Jean Geanie.”Alexander has previously been seen in productions of “Godspell” and “Spring Awakening” and a new musical called “WAS.” He is a NYC nightlife legend and icon, who is stopped five or 10 times a day because of his likeness to David Bowie.
