NEW YORK, June 29 (UPI) -- The stage adaptation of the 1997, animated, movie musical Anastasia is to open on Broadway April 24, producers announced.
Set to play at the Broadhurst Theatre, the company will be led by Christy Altomare, Derek Klena, John Bolton and Caroline O'Connor in the roles they originated during the show's sold-out world premiere at Hartford Stage in Conn.
Additional casting will be announced soon.
"After finishing a record-breaking run in Hartford, we look forward to bringing the magic of Anastasia to Broadway audiences next spring," producers Bill Taylor and Tom Kirdahy said in a joint statement Tuesday. "In Hartford, we saw people ages 8-100 travel from all over the world to enjoy Anastasia's enduring story. We are thrilled to have Christy, Derek, John and Caroline leading our company again for the Broadway premiere."
"From the twilight of the Russian Empire to the euphoria of Paris in the 1920s, the new musical, Anastasia, is the romantic, adventure-filled story of a brave, young woman attempting to discover the mystery of her past," a synopsis said.
