Celebrating resounding critical acclaim across the country having played to sold-out houses during the last season, the producers announced today, in accordance with Bastille Day’s victory festivities, that the North America tour will be back for a second year on the road! Beginning performances in San Diego this October, Anastasia will be visiting more than 25 cities including Los Angeles, Toronto, Boston and Atlanta.
“It’s just incredible how much love visitors have shown for Anastasia over the last four years,” said Dan Hinde of Stage Entertainment. “We’re so excited to introduce her story to new and returning audiences across America and all across the globe.”
“Anya’s journey across America this last season has been an extraordinary experience for the entire company,” said producer Tom Kirdahy. “We are thrilled to share the sweeping score, gorgeous designs, and story of one strong young woman’s journey to discover home, love and family in our second year across North America.”
From the Tony Award-winning creators of the Broadway classic Ragtime and inspired by the beloved films, Anastasia is the new Broadway musical that’s “one of the most gorgeous shows in years!” (New York Observer). 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-winning director Darko Tresnjak.
