It’s been an interesting revival for George Orwell’s book 1984, with the novel — first published in 1949 — recently hitting best-seller lists.

And 1984 got a stage adaptation of the dystopian classic in London beginning in 2013. The play ended up being a huge success; so much so that it’s coming to Broadway this summer.

Sonia Friedman and Scott Rudin — famously known as a producer for such Oscar-winning movies as The Social Network, No Country for Old Men, and Moneyball, will produce the Broadway show.

Check out the very odd press release announcing the news:
