Several stage favorites will take part in a lab presentation of The Secret Garden before the Marsha Norman and Lucy Simon musical returns to Broadway in a Warren Carlyle-helmed revival.
Taking part in the lab, presented May 19–June 8, will be Sierra Boggess (School of Rock, The Phantom of the Opera) as Lily, Matt Doyle (Spring Awakening, The Book of Mormon) as Albert, Drew Gehling (Waitress, the upcoming Dave) as Neville, Clifton Duncan (The Play That Goes Wrong, the upcoming Carmen Jones) as Archibald, Amber Iman (Shuffle Along, Hamilton tour) as Martha, Adam Chanler-Berat (Saint Joan, Amélie) as Dickon, Brooklyn Shuck (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Matilda) as Mary, Cameron Mann as Colin, Sally Ann Triplett (Off-Broadway’s Sweeney Todd, Finding Neverland) as Medlock, Tony winner Jim Norton (The Seafarer, The Crucible), as Ben, American Idol's Anoop Desai as Fakir, and Kuhoo Verma (The Big Sick) as Ayah.
The developmental production is produced by Gerald Goehrin and Michael F. Mitri, who will bring the musical to Broadway during the 2018–2019 season. The two picked up a Broadway option in January 2017, hot off the heels of multiple high-profile iterations of the musical, including a David Armstrong-helmed staging and a Manhattan Concert Productions presentation that featured Boggess.
Broadway dates, theatre, and casting will be announced at a later time.
