As announced by Playbill.com, Anastasia, one of the new musicals productions to hit Broadway, has been set to open at the Broadhurst Theater on April 24, 2017.

Inspired by the animated film released by Twentieth Century Fox in 1997, the musical features a score by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, and a book by Terrence McNally, all Tony Award Winners.

Anastasia tells the legend of Russian Grand Duchess, Anastasia Nikolaevna. The story centers on amnesiac orphan Anastasia, known from then on as Anya, who is hoping to find her family, and uncover mysteries of her past.

Anastasia has been previously premiered in Connecticut, at the Hartford Stage just last May 13. The same director from the original production, Darko Tresnjak, will lead the Broadway production.

Aside from Tresnjak, the Broadway production will also feature most of the original Hartford cast including Derek Klena as Dmitry, John Bolton as Vlad Popov, Caroline O’Connor as Countess Lily Malevsky-Malevitch, and Christy Altomare as Anya.

Altomare has been known for her portrayal of Wendla in the National Tour of Spring Awakening, and as Sophie in Broadway’s Mamma Mia!

Tony Award Nominee for Les Miserables, Ramin Karimloo will play Gleb Vaganov, a role that was created especially for the theater stage production.

According to the musical’s official website, Broadway previews will begin on March 23. Tickets will go on sale starting October 7. Currently, the production is pre-selling tickets until September 26 for American Express card holders.

Here’s the trailer to the much-awaited musical.
