Life of Pi to Open on Broadway
Lolita Chakrabarti’s stage adaptation of Yann Martel’s novel will open on Broadway in March 2023. Life of Pi is directed by Max Webster, with music by Andrew T Mackay. “It has been such a privilege to adapt Yann Martel’s modern classic Life of Pi for the stage. It was daunting, creatively, exciting, and always collaborative. To be able to tell this story the way I imagined it, to create the world using my references and viewpoint has been an extraordinary gift. And to see it resonate with young and old audience members alike has been humbling,” said playwright Lolita Chakrabarti, “It is a beautiful, visceral, magical show, a story of survival which all of us can fundamentally relate to after the effects of the pandemic. I am beyond thrilled that we will bring this play to Broadway.” Life of Pi is currently playing at Wyndham’s Theatre in London’s West End.
