Beautiful sets. Due to the story being told in Russia & Paris they used a hologram in the background to portray Leningrad, Paris, a ballroom etc. I love the story but thought it was unnecessary at the end for the actors (in character) to remind...More

The show was not only entertaining but also had a good story. Just loved it. It's definitely worth seeing if one is in the city.

STORY: Do you know the animated film Anastasia? Well, if you loved that story, you will enjoy the Broadway show. There are slight variations to the story - instead of Rasputin we have a Russian solider as the antagonist. There are new songs, but the...More

I knew the musical was different from the film in storyline, but I wasn't sure how it would be executed. While I was underwhelmed during the first act, the show came together absolutely stunningly in the second act. I really loved the song "In a...More

Beautiful production with fantastic set. As someone who has never seen the cartoon the story was really moving. If you are unsure what to see at broadway this is really great.

First of, Anastasia was my favorite cartoon growing up. The story/history of it was just worth telling. I just loved the fact that it was dark and haunting at times and the story telling was impeccable. They infused a lot of high tech and excellent...More

It is an old theater so the speakers are not in the walls but hanging on the wall. We were in the 2nd box stage right and we didn't see the things happening on stage right.
