Following the phenomenal success of Parade earlier this year, Titanic in 2014, and Ragtime in 2013, MCP returns to bring Drama Desk and TONY Award-winning The Secret Garden to Lincoln Center. Both concert performances of The Secret Garden will feature over 200 singers from the across the United States; the enlarged forces of the New York City Chamber Orchestra; and a full professional Broadway cast. Creative team and cast announcements to follow.


Based on the 1911 novel of The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett, the musical’s book and lyrics are by Marsha Norman, with music by Lucy Simon. Orphaned while living in India, 10 year-old Mary Lennox returns to Yorkshire, England to live with her embittered, reclusive uncle Archibald, whom she has never met. There, the ill-tempered and lonely Mary meets Martha, a chambermaid, who tells her of a secret garden which belonged to her aunt Lily before she died. Mary's search for the garden introduces her to a slew of other characters including Dickon (Martha's brother), Ben (the head gardener), Neville (her other uncle), and a spirited robin that seems to be trying to talk to her. This compelling tale of forgiveness and hope reveals that even the cruelest of environments can blossom with new life.
