Wow! This show is fantastic, the costumes, staging and performers were amazing! I loved it! However, just as a pre warning to anyone, we booked these tickets last minute online using tele charge whilst we were in New York. We found tickets for the Box...More

I was severely disappointed by the stage reinterpretation of the excellent Fox animated film from 1997. My expectations going in were high. Having experienced the excellent stage productions of the Lion King and Aladdin, I was anticipating an excellent adaptation. The advertising had heavily emphasized...More

What a great surprise this play was. It far exceeded my expectations. The set design, costumes, and singing all first rate. You would be hard pressed not to enjoy this show. It was wonderful in every regard. I recommend it! First rate in every regard.

Fabulous show with stunning costumes and musical score. The Broadhurst Theater is 101 years old, so it is a more intimate setting than some of the bigger theaters. There didn't appear to be a bad seat in the house. We were on the far right,...More

I really enjoyed Anastasia on Broadway. After all, the basis for this musical is a dark subject. They greatly softened the storyline so little children should not be upset. There is the pointing of a gun, but it all ends well. Other than that, the...More

I had no expectations as I only knew the story from history and not from any dramatic re-enactments. The story line but deep with enough lightness. The caliber of the actors seemed even superior to the script at times. The sets were stunning and breathtaking...More

Stage design was great and the cast were fantastic. Some differences between the stage show and the Disney Movie but this added to the greatness of the story and performance. It kept me glued and interested.

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.

It is not very steep, but the stairs are very narrow as it is a really old theater. I would suggest you look for same price tickets on the orchestra.

I certainly do! The costumes and sets are beautiful, those things alone are worth the experience. My 10 year old niece didn’t know the story and still loved the performance/ experience.
