“Intelligent and exhilarating!” –The Wall Street Journal
Broadway In Chicago and the producers of ANASTASIA are delighted to announce that ANASTASIA, the romantic and adventure-filled new musical inspired by beloved films, will make its Chicago debut at Broadway In Chicago’s Oriental Theatre (24 W. Randolph) for a limited two-week engagement March 26 through April 7, 2019. ANASTASIA will be part of Broadway In Chicago’s upcoming season. Subscriptions will go on sale in the fall of 2018.
ANASTASIA will join the line-up of performances at the annual Broadway In Chicago Summer Concert, sponsored by ABC 7 Chicago and hosted by Janet Davies, ABC 7 Chicago’s entertainment reporter and host of the entertainment and lifestyle program 190 NORTH on ABC 7. The Broadway In Chicago Summer Concert will take place on Monday, August 13, 2018 at 6:15 p.m. at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion at Millennium Park (201 E Randolph St).
From the Tony Award®-winning creators of the Broadway classic Ragtime, ANASTASIA is a dazzling new show that 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.
This 2017 Broadway hit features book by celebrated playwright Terrence McNally, a lush new score by Stephen Flaherty (music) and Lynn Ahrens (lyrics) that features favorites "Journey to the Past” and “Once Upon a December,” and direction by Tony Award® winner Darko Tresnjak.
