Dr. Zhivago Star Announced
The producers of the upcoming Broadway musical production of Dr. Zhivago have announced the name of their star. Tam Mutu, star of the London productions of Les Miserables and Love Never Dies, as well as the upcoming London production of City of Angels, will make his Broadway debut in Dr. Zhivago. Mr. Mutu had been slated to make his Broadway debut in Rebecca -- a musical based on the Daphne DuMaurier novel and Alfred Hitchcock movie of the same name -- until that production became mired in a phony investor scandal. Dr. Zhivago, which began life at LaJolla in 2006 before a revised Australian production in 2010, will begin Broadway previews on March 27th in advance of an April 21st opening.
