Journey to the past with the new Broadway musical Anastasia at the Lutcher Theater on Thursday, March 30, 2023, and Friday, March 31, 2023. Both performances begin at 7:30 p.m.
Inspired by the beloved films, this dazzling show will transport you from the twilight of the Russian Empire to the euphoria of Paris in the 1920s as a brave young woman sets out on a journey to discover her past. Pursued by a ruthless Soviet officer determined to silence her, Anastasia 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.
“We are thrilled to bring this Broadway musical to Southeast Texas,” said Lynae Sanford, executive director of the Lutcher Theater. “The audience will be mesmerized with the costumes, the music, and the scenery as this story is brought to life.”
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. Port Arthur, Texas native Glenn Alexander II serves as the conductor and music director for the National U.S. Tour.
