New York, NY – Doctor Zhivago, a new musical based on the Nobel Prize winning novel and Academy Award winning classic, will begin Broadway previews March 27, 2015 as a member of The Broadway Collection. One of the most romantic stories ever written, the stage reimagining will be directed by two-time Tony Award winner Des McAnuff and choreographed by Tony Award nominee Kelly Devine. With music by Tony Award nominee Lucy Simon and lyrics by duo Michael Korie and Amy Powers, the musical officially opens on April 21, 2015 at the Broadway Theatre.

Doctor Zhivago is a heartbreaking epic romance, revolving around the search for love during the finals of Czarist Russia. Raised as an aristocrat, Zhivago is a political idealist, physician, and poet whose life is tossed by the tides of history as he is torn between a life with his close childhood friend and wife, and the passionate and mysterious Lara. Zhivago, however, is not alone in his yearnings for Lara, and must compete with both revolutionaries and aristocracy alike to win the heart of the woman he cannot live without.

As a part of The Broadway Collection, Doctor Zhivago belongs to a group of New York City’s most highly regarded musicals and shows, selected for their unparalleled popularity with international audiences and put together by Broadway Inbound. Tickets are available through the international Broadway Inbound and Broadway Collection partners and domestically through traditional ticketing platforms like Telecharge and Ticketmaster.
