A new adventure beckons for Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty's musical, as it announced today that it will be closing on Broadway this spring, before heading out on a national tour.
Based on the 1997 hit animated film, the adaptation, with book by Terrance McNally, officially opened at the Broadhurst Theatre in April 2017 where it was met with praise from both critics and audiences. Whilst the closure marks the end of its Great White Way tenure, producer Tom Kirdahy is staying positive: "Generations from now, people will continue to perform our beautiful musical about a strong young woman and its themes of home, love, and family. We couldn't be more proud."
Don't miss your chance to discover Anastasia if you haven't already - only you'll have to leave the Once Upon a December for another day.
The story of Anastasia
Anya is a plucky 18-year-old living in a rural Russian orphanage, with no memory of her true identity. One day she is spotted by rogueish conman Dmitry, who, upon noticing her likeness to the missing Romanov Princess Anastasia, concocts a plan to pass her off as the real Anastasia to Empress Marie, who has offered a reward for her return. As they embark on their journey, a romance begins to blossom between the pair, and memories of Anastasia's past life come back to her. But her reappearance has also causes shockwaves throughout Europe as the new ruling party of Russia attempt to uncover the truth through their own brutal methods...
Anastasia is now playing at the Broadhurst Theater through to March 31.
