A musical version of the romantic epic Doctor Zhivago is heading to Broadway in March, the Hollywood Reporter says. Preview performances of the show based on Russian author Boris Pasternak’s 1957 novel, which spawned the 1965 Oscar-winning film adaptation starring Omar Sharif and Julie Christie, will begin on March 27, with the show set to open on April 21 at the Broadway Theatre.

The musical is being directed by Des McAnuff, a two-time Tony Award winner who has headed up productions including Jersey Boys, Jesus Christ Superstar, and The Who’s Tommy.
