Inspired by the beloved films, the romantic and adventure-filled new musical ANASTASIA is on a journey to Norfolk at last!

From the Tony Award®-winning creators of the Broadway classic Ragtime, ANASTASIA 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. “Smartly adapted by Terrence McNally, ANASTASIA is a sweeping adventure, romance and historical epic whose fine craftsmanship will satisfy musical-theater fans” (Time Out).

ANASTASIA features a book by celebrated playwright Terrence McNally, a lush new score by Stephen Flaherty (music) and Lynn Ahrens (lyrics) based on original direction by Tony Award® winner Darko Tresnjak with choreography by Peggy Hickey and tour direction by Sarah Hartmann.
