Dr. Zhivago Officially Coming to Broadway
A production of Dr. Zhivago that was speculated several weeks ago has officially been announced. According to an Equity casting notice, rehearsals are set to begin in February and open officially in April. The show is expected to play the Broadway Theatre after Cinderella ends its run there in a production directed by Des McAnuff and choreographed by Kelly Devine. The musical is based on the novel by Boris Pasternak and follows a doctor from the Russian revolution through World War II. The production premiered at La Jolla before moving, in a highly revised production, to the Lyric Theatre in Sydney, Australia.
