Hartford Stage Extends Anastasia by 8 Performances; Show Runs Through June 19

HARTFORD, CT — APRIL 12, 2016 — Due to high ticket demand, Hartford Stage announced today that it is adding eight performances to the run of the new musical Anastasia. The show now runs from May 12 through June 19. The official opening is Friday, May 27.

Anastasia, which is inspired by the real life of Grand Duchess Anastasia Romanov and the enduring mystery of her true identity, reunites the Tony Award-winning writers of the Broadway classic Ragtime: book by Terrence McNally, music by Stephen Flaherty and lyrics by Lynn Ahrens. Hartford Stage Artistic Director Darko Tresnjak, Tony Award-winner for Best Direction of a Musical for A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder, will direct, and Peggy Hickey (A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder) will choreograph.

From the twilight of the Russian Empire to the euphoria of Paris in the 1920s, the new musical Anastasia is the romantic and rousing story of a brave young woman attempting to discover the mystery of her past while finding a place for herself in the rapidly changing world of a new century.

The new musical is inspired by the Twentieth Century Fox Motion Pictures.
