Anastasia The Musical Kansas City Tickets
Anastasia The Musical Kansas City TicketsWhile it's based on the 1997 Disney movie, Anastasia The Musical has developed its own generation of fans. The first reading for this stage production occurred in 2012. After years of development, the musical debuted May 13, 2016, at the Hartford Stage in Connecticut. The production's success led it to Broadway, where it opened on Apr 24, 2017. Anastasia The Musical's run on Broadway earned it a national tour that kicked off in October 2018. The national tour is scheduled to travel through North America throughout 2019 and 2020.
Journey to the PastWritten by Terrence McNally, Anastasia The Musical combines a dramatic story with a magical journey of self-discovery. It opens with the beginning of the Bolshevik revolution in which the last Tsar of Russia, and his entire family, were killed in their palace. Some Russian people held out hope that at least one of the family members survived and would rise up again. The story then moves to two con men who are trying to find a girl who looks like Anastasia to exploit for their own benefit. They meet a street sweeper named Anya, who bears an uncanny resemblance to Princess Anastasia. More things are revealed to them, and Anya begins to realize that she may actually be Anastasia. Anya then travels through Russia and France to discover who she truly is, but her trip is not easy since an obsessed Bolshevik general is always only a few steps behind her.
