Lambert Jackson have announced the return of Doctor Zhivago in Concert, which will play at the London Palladium on the 7th May 2023 for one performance only. Ramin Karimloo and Celinde Schoenmaker, who starred in the 2019 concert production, will reprise their roles as Yurii Zhivago and Lara Guishar respectively.
Based on the Nobel Prize-winning novel by Boris Pasternak, Doctor Zhivago tells the story of Yurii Zhivago (Ramin Karimloo), a political idealist, physician, and poet whose life is tossed by the tides of history as he is torn between a life with his close childhood friend and wife, and the passionate and mysterious Lara Guishar (Celinde Schoenmaker).
Olivier and Tony Award nominee Ramin Karimloo made his name in some of the West End’s most enduring productions, most notably The Phantom of the Opera and Les Misérables. He originated the role of the Phantom in Phantom of the Opera sequel Love Never Dies in 2010 before making his Broadway debut in the 2014 revival of Les Miserables.
Celinde Schoenmaker is known for appearing as Fantine in the West End production of the musical Les Misérables and as Christine Daae in the West End production of The Phantom of the Opera. Other London theatre credits include Jenny Lind in Barnum at the Menier Chocolate Factory. She also played Renate Blauel in the Elton John biopic Rocketman.
The musical features a book by Michael Weller and lyrics by Tony nominee Michael Korie and Emmy nominee Amy Powers, while the score was composed by two-time Grammy winner and Tony nominee Lucy Simon.
Doctor Zhivago is directed by Jordan Murphy (Sunset Boulevard, Matilda, Mary Poppins) with musical direction by Adam Hoskins (The Secret Garden, Dr Zhivago, Camelot).
