92Y to Welcome DOCTOR ZHIVAGO's Cast & Creative Team in May
92Y presents an evening of conversation and musical performances from the cast and creative team of the new Broadway musical Doctor Zhivago, as they discuss bringing this timeless tale of romance and revolution to the Broadway stage. Stars Tam Mutu (Yurii Zhivago) and Kelli Barrett (Lara Guishar) perform songs from the new show; they also join composer Lucy Simon (a two-time Grammy winner and Tony nominee for The Secret Garden) and director Des McAnuff (the Tony-winning director of Jersey Boys) to discuss bringing Boris Pasternak's classic tale to the stage, and making Doctor Zhivago sing. The conversation is moderated by Howard Sherman, U.S. correspondent for The Stage in London.
Based on the Nobel Prize-winning novel and the Academy Award,-winning classic, Doctor Zhivago is heartbreaking epic romance, revolving around the search for love during the final days 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. Doctor Zhivago opens April 21 at the Broadway Theatre.
