Doctor Zhivago is adapted from Boris Pasternak’s novel of the same title by Michael Weller (book), Lucy Simon (music), and Michael Korie and Amy Powers (lyrics). Set amid World War I and the Russian Revolution, the musical tells the story of a political idealist who must choose between his devoted wife and his mysterious lover, while competing for the latter's affection with revolutionaries and aristocrats to win her heart. It premiered at the La Jolla Playhouse in 2006 before opening in 2011 at the Lyric Theatre in Sydney, Australia.
