Description

from Anastasia
Based on the 1997 animated film, the romantic and adventure-filled new musical Anastasia comes to Broadway.

This production includes a new score from the Tony-winning team behind Ragtime, Once On This Island and Seussical—Ahrens and Flaherty—along with the film’s classic songs, including the Oscar-nominated “Journey to the Past.”

This dazzling show transports us from the twilight of the Russian Empire to the euphoria of Paris in the 1920s, as a brave young woman sets out to discover the mystery of her past. Pursued by a ruthless Soviet officer determined to silence her, Anya enlists the aid of a dashing conman and a lovable ex-aristocrat. Together, they embark on an epic adventure to help her find home, love, and family.Anastasia features a book by celebrated playwright Terrence McNally, a lush, new score by Stephen Flaherty (music) and Lynn Ahrens (lyrics), and direction by Tony Award® winner Darko Tresnjak. As The Wall Street Journal raves, “Fantastical, intelligent, well-crafted, exhilarating and full of surprises, it deserves a coronation. Anastasia is the real thing.”

The Broadway was wonderfully orchestraed, beautiful costumes, lighting and effects , beautiful musical scores performed by the cast with wonderful chemistry on stage. Christy was born to play the part as Anastasia, and wish I can go see it again. I would give it 5 stars, but nothing is "perfect" there was some parts that didn't seemed to flow like some plot points of the show, but overall it was really good and I would recommend it to anyone. Especially those who already saw the 1997 animated version of Anastasia.
