The gates of Broadway will soon open again for The Secret Garden.
Producers announced Monday that the first-ever Broadway revival of the Tony Award-winning musical will arrive in New York next season.
The Secret Garden, based on the classic novel of the same name by Frances Hodgson Burnett, centers on Mary Lennox, a young orphan sent to live with her cold and distant uncle in Yorkshire, where she discovers a decrepit garden that she sets out to bring back to life. The stage adaptation first opened on Broadway in 1991, earning six Tony nominations (including one for best musical) and winning ones for best book of a musical, featured actress in a musical (Daisy Eagan), and scenic design of a musical. It closed in January 1993, after running for more than 700 performances.
The musical has a book and lyrics by Tony winner Marsha Norman and music by Tony nominee Lucy Simon. The new production will be directed and choreographed by Tony winner Warren Carlyle.
Additional details, including casting, a Broadway theater, and opening date, have not yet been announced.
