DOCTOR ZHIVAGO Plays Her Majesty's Theatre in 2011

DOCTOR ZHIVAGO- The explosive new musical romance DOCTOR ZHIVAGO will be appearing at Her Majesty's Theatre in 2011. Based on Boris Pasternak's 20th Century Russian masterpiece, Doctor Yurii Zhivago is a man divided against himself: on the one hand a dedicated husband, father and healer; on the other a poet, dreamer and sensualist. Reflecting his struggle the musical swirls around him in a panoramic portrait of a nation in upheaval, and tells a story at once epic and personal, funny and hearbreaking, impetuously romantic and bitingly political.

The action sweeps breathlessly from the final Glory Days of Czarist Russia through the chaos and upheaval of the Russian Revolution into an unprecedented tyranny under a heartless new political regime.

This powerful and moving love story will be directed by Broadway's Des McAnuff (Jersey Boys, Big River) with music by Lucy Simon, lyrics by Michael Korie and Amy Powers and book by Michael Weller.

With its' lush, unforgettable melodies, suspenseful story telling and the internationally renowned Anthony Warlow in the title role, DOCTOR ZHIVAGO introduces the world to a new musical in the grand tradition. The stellar cast will also include, Lucy Maunder as Lara, Taneel Van Zyl, Peter Carroll, Trish Noble, Martin Crewes and Bartholomew John.

DOCTOR ZHIVAGO opens at Her Majesty's Theatre on 9 April 2011.

Don't miss the most breathtaking love story ever told.
