Performing Arts Fort Worth proudly presents the critically-acclaimed Broadway
production of ANASTASIA May 28-June 2 at Bass Performance Hall. Tickets start at $44 and are on sale now!

From the Tony Award® -winning creators of the Broadway classic Ragtime and inspired by the beloved
films, ANASTASIA is the new Broadway musical that’s “one of the most gorgeous shows in years!” (New York Observer).
This dazzling show transports us from the twilight of the Russian Empire to the euphoria of Paris in the 1920s, as a
brave young woman sets out to discover the mystery of her past. Pursued by a ruthless Soviet officer determined to
silence her, Anya 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.

ANASTASIA features a book by celebrated playwright Terrence McNally, a lush, new score by Stephen Flaherty (music)
and Lynn Ahrens (lyrics) and direction by Tony Award-winning director Darko Tresnjak.
The cast features Lila Coogan as Anya, Stephen Brower as Dmitry, Jason Michael Evans as Gleb, Joy Franz as Dowager
Empress, Tari Kelly as Countess Lily, Edward Staudenmayer as Vlad and Victoria Amelia Bingham as Little Anastasia.

The musical began performances on Broadway on March 23, 2017, and played to sold out crowds throughout its twoyear run, which recently ended on March 31. It was a critical favorite, with Time Out proclaiming “Anastasia is a
sweeping adventure, romance and historical epic whose fine craftsmanship will satisfy musical-theater fans.” The show
garnered multiple Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle awards and nominations.
