Audition Information

Book by Terrence McNally

Music by Stephen Flaherty

Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens


Inspired by the Twentieth Century Fox Motion Picture by

special arrangement with Buena Vista Theatrical.

From the play by Marcelle Maurette as adapted by Guy Bolton

From Tony winners Terrence McNally, Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens, creators of such Broadway classics as Ragtime and Once On This Island, this dazzling show transports its audience 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 con man and a lovable ex-aristocrat. Together, they embark on an epic adventure to help her find home, love and family.

Anastasia is presented through arrangement with Concord Theatricals.
