“Anastasia” coming to Broadway in April 2017

Under the direction of Tony Award-winner Darko Tresnjak, the musical Anastasia premiered at Connecticut’s Hartford Stage earlier this year. Now the production is bound for Broadway’s Broadhurst Theater, with a targeted opening date of April 24, 2017.
The musical is, in part, an adaption of the popular, Oscar-nominated animated movie from 1997. The story centers on Altomare, a brave young woman who travels from Russia to 1920s Paris hoping to discover the mystery of her past.
Peggy Hickey, a longtime collaborator with Tresnjak, provided choreography for the production. One part features a Swan Lake ballet sequence.
