I saw this production in Denver at the Buell Theatre. The set was brilliant, offering quick scene changes and wonderful color schemes. The special effects were well executed with just the right amount of drama to convey what was happening inside and outside the palace, yet not dwell on the horrors of the revolution. The music was quite enjoyable, and although I didn't come away humming any particular melody as I can often do with a musical, the music was very well suited to the storyline and the action on stage. The script was historically accurate, too.

Beautiful stage settings, superby acted. Quite the fairytale. If you are a Disney fanatic, this show is for you. Anastasia herself was just a doll. Superb voice. Worth a visit.

Bittersweet stories are my favorite, especially with a happy ending. I had the opportunity to see this masterpiece thanks to BroadwayPass that offered me some better tickets than vividseats and stubhub. We’re all familiar with the Bolshevik Revolution and the grim fate of the Romanovs. The question – did anyone survived bothered the minds of people from all over the world for a pretty long time. No one could believe that a mighty royal family was annihilated in a matter of minutes. That’s how “Anastasia” was created. Like I said, the story is bittersweet – bitter at the beginning, sweet at the ending. Just how it is supposed to be. It is really intriguing how the orphan girl with amnesia Anya finds out, step by step, her past and who she really is. This all happens with the help by the two con men – Dmitry and Vlad. Their plan to bring supposed-to-be Anastasia to her grandmother in Paris turns into a romance between Dmitry and Anastasia. The two men educate Anya in dancing, dining manners and history, thus helping her remember parts of her past. After that they head to Paris, where her grandmother resides, to ask for payment for saving her granddaughter. However, they are followed by the Bolshevik general Gleb Vaganov, who falls in love with Anya and, in the end, lets her escape with Dmitry, telling the wide audience that this was a fake Anastasia. The acting is superb. Christy Altomare was excellent in playing both the noble Anastasia and the amnesic Anya. Her singing was tremendous. The same goes Cody Simpson (Dmitry) who first was looking only for profit, but later fell in love. We can say it again about for John Bolton (Vlad) and Constantine Germanacos (Gleb). Penny Fuller is also worth noting in her role as Dowager Empress Maria Feodorovna. The musical acts were amazing. I’m really fascinated by the performances of "Once Upon a December", "Journey to the Past", "The Neva Flows", "Meant to Be" and "Everything to Win". The singing of the whole cast was amazing and got several standing ovations. The Broadhurst Theatre is a magnificent place, probably the only one that can turn into a royal palace, abandoned theater in St. Petersburg and a noble residence in Paris. Simply magic!
