Tickets at Broadway Theatre

The Broadway Theatre is one of a select few legitimate theaters that was originally built as a movie house. Its seating capacity of 1,765 made it ideal for the changeover to musical theater in 1930. It showed movies for a brief period again in the 1950s but has been a legitimate theater ever since.

It is currently owned and operated by the Shubert Organization and continues to be one of the largest Broadway theaters.

Story for Doctor Zhivago

Based on the 1957 novel by Boris Pasternak, the stage adaptation has a book by Michael Weller, music by Lucy Simon and lyrics by Michael Korie and Amy Powers. Set during the final days of Czarist Russia, the First World War and the chaos of the Russian revolution, the romance follows Zhivago. Raised an aristocrat, he 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 devoted wife, Tonia Gromeko and the passionate and mysterious Lara Guishar. Zhivago is not alone in his yearnings for Lara, competing for her affections with the young revolutionary Pasha Antipov, and the aristocrat Viktor Komarovsky.

Critics’ Reviews for Doctor Zhivago

"An epic romantic musical."

New York Post

"Tam Mutu and Kelli Barrett are utterly perfect as the star-crossed lovers. Barrett’s soprano is gorgeous and she is a worthy Lara, bewitching as a woman both tortured and strong"

Associated Press

"Gripping, lush and lavish"

The Hollywood Reporter
