Here’s Your First Look at the Whimsical Anastasia Musical
If you want to catch a Broadway show on your next trip to NYC, you’re in luck. Not only is Hamilton still going strong, but soon you’ll also be able to enjoy la vie en rose with Amélie, A New Musical and get some Russian flair in Anastasia the musical. If the beloved story of a bold gal discovering her royal roots is one of your faves, then you definitely have to check out the teaser that will give you a first look at the majestic Anastasia musical.
Loosely based on the life of Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna Romanova of Russia, the IRL tragedy started when the 17-year-old was killed along with her ruling family. Rumors of her survival persisted throughout the years, and this is the point were the musical comes in (as did the beloved 1997 movie of the same name).
The story imagines that Anastasia grew up not knowing of her royal lineage, and the feisty character discovers who she truly is and must adjust to her new role and life.

With a talented team ready to bring the story to the stage, the teaser may only be 30 seconds long, but you still get to hear the incredible voice of Anya (played by Christy Altomare) and get a sense of the whimsy that will be charming audiences when Anastasia comes to Broadway on April 24th, 2017.
