A musical adaptation of “Doctor Zhivago” is expected to begin performances at the Broadway Theater in the spring of 2015, with another new musical, “King Kong,” in discussions to move into that theater after the “Zhivago” run ends, according to three theater executives familiar with the plans. The Broadway, a prime house for musicals, is coming open with Wednesday’s announcement that “Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella” will close on Jan. 3.
A spokesman for the “Zhivago” project said on Thursday that no plans for a Broadway run were confirmed. But the theater executives, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss confidential planning, said that Anita Waxman, a longtime Broadway producer, was completing deals to start performances of “Zhivago” at the Broadway in the spring. Ms. Waxman did not immediately reply to an e-mail message on Thursday.
“Zhivago” ran at the La Jolla Playhouse in 2006 and has undergone extensive changes for more recent productions in Australia. The musical is based on Boris Pasternak’s Russian epic of the same title, which was made into a hit movie in 1965 starring Omar Sharif and Julie Christie.
The producer of “King Kong,” meanwhile, has been circling the Broadway for months but is not ready to bring the musical to New York because of extensive creative changes underway since the show’s world premiere production last year in Australia, the three executives said.
Carmen Pavlovic, the “Kong” producer, said in an email on Thursday that the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Marsha Norman (“‘night, Mother,” “The Secret Garden”) has recently signed on as the “Kong” book writer, and preliminary discussions are underway with several possible directors. Ms. Pavlovic didn’t name candidates to direct; the three theater executives said that Tony Award winner Joe Mantello (“Wicked”) and Tony nominee Alex Timbers (“Rocky”) have passed on “Kong,” while Sam Gold (“Fun Home”) had a meeting about the show but wasn’t expected to sign on.
