The Tony Award-winning musical The Secret Garden will return for its first-ever Broadway revival next season, producers have announced. With book and lyrics by Tony Award winner Marsha Norman and music by Tony Award nominee Lucy Simon, The Secret Garden will be directed, choreographed, and reimagined for a new generation by Tony Award winner Warren Carlyle.

Based on the novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden tells the story of Mary Lennox, a young, Indian-born English orphan sent to live with her cold and distant aunt and uncle in Yorkshire. There, Mary discovers a decrepit garden, which she sets out to bring back to life.

First produced on Broadway in 1991, The Secret Garden ran for more than 700 performances and earned six Tony nominations, including Best Musical. It won for Best Book of a Musical, Best Featured Actress in a Musical (Daisy Egan), and Best Scenic Design of a Musical. It won the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Musical.

Dates, cast, and theater will be announced at a later date.
