Meyers explained how the performance was temporarily halted due to a rude audience member.
Based on the 1958 Nobel Prize-winning novel by Russian author Boris Pasternak, Doctor Zhivago will officially open on Broadway April 21 at the Broadway Theatre.
The musical premiered at the La Jolla Playhouse in May 2006 and was later revised for an Australian production produced by John Frost in 2010. Tony Award winner Des McAnuff, who helmed the American and Australian productions, again directs for Broadway.
The stage production of Doctor Zhivago features the work of bookwriter Michael Weller (Moonchildren, Loose Ends), composer Lucy Simon (The Secret Garden) and lyricists Michael Korie (Grey Gardens) and Amy Powers (Lizzie Borden). Mutu, the West End leading man known for his roles in Les Misérables, Love Never Dies and the Donmar Warehouse production of City of Angels, makes his Broadway debut as Yurii Zhivago in a cast that also features Barrett (Wicked, Rock of Ages) as Lara Guishar, Tony Award nominee Hewitt (Rocky Horror Show, Dracula) as Viktor Komarovsky, Nolan (Once, Jesus Christ Superstar) as Pasha Antipov and Josh Canfield as Liberius.
