The 1991 Lucy Simon-Marsha Norman musical The Secret Garden is being prepped for its first Broadway revival.Gerald Goehring and Michael F. Mitri of Patriot Productions have picked up a Broadway option. Goehring told Playbill.com.

 

“We got it right after we saw the amazing work done in Washington, D.C.” by the recent revival there. This new production was created in partnership between Seattle's The 5th Avenue Theatre and Shakespeare Theatre Company in Washington D.C.The musical is based on the children’s novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett, which tells the story of Mary Lennox, an orphan girl being raised by her strangely cold and distant uncle.

 

Mary finds renewal when she discovers a locked, dead garden and brings it back to life. Librettist Marsha Norman won the 1991 Tony Award for Best Book of a Musical. Lucy Simon was nominated for Best Score, and the entire show was nominated for Best Musical that year.

 

Goehring said, “Under the extraordinary guidance of Michael Kahn and his team at the Shakespeare Theatre Company, and director David Armstrong [executive producer and artistic director of Seattle's 5th Avenue Theatre], this beautiful show is even more powerful than it was in 1991. The reviews certainly reflect that. Marsha Norman and Lucy Simon have approached rewriting the show with a fresh eye, so it can be rediscovered by a new generation of theatregoers.”
