About the Show

Musical theater fave Anthony Warlow played the title role in Australia.

A long-brewing musical adaptation of Doctor Zhivago is expected to arrive on Broadway in the spring of 2015, according to The New York Times. The musical would play the Broadway Theatre following the closing of Cinderella on January 3.

Based on the 1957 novel by Boris Pasternak, Doctor Zhivago details the life of Yuri Zhivago, a physician and poet, during the Russian Revolution of 1905 and World War II. The story is best known from the hit 1965 film starring Omar Sharif and Julie Christie.

The musical adaptation, featuring a book by Lucy Simon and lyrics by Michael Korie and Amy Powers, premiered in 2006 at La Jolla Playhouse. A heavily revised version opened at the Lyric Theatre in Sydney, Australia with Annie star Anthony Warlow in the lead role under the direction of Tony Award winner Des McAnuff (The Who’s Tommy, Jersey Boys).

The new staging of Miss Saigon, currently a hit in London’s West End, and another musical from down under, the stage adaptation of King Kong, are also possible future tenants for the theater, according to the Times.
