George Orwell's iconic novel 1984 will come to Broadway this summer in a new production opening June 22 at the Hudson Theatre. Created by Robert Icke and Duncan Macmillan, the drama comes to New York after four acclaimed runs in the United Kingdom, with Sonia Friedman and Scott Rudin producing.

1984 features a creative team that includes Chloe Lamford (scenic and costume design), Natasha Chivers (lighting design), Tom Gibbons (sound design), and Tim Reid (video design).

One of the most widely referenced and best-known fiction titles of all time, 1984 was first published in 1949. The work depicts a dystopian future in which thought is suppressed and a totalitarian regime controls the public. Full casting and additional information about the production will be announced in the coming months.
