Take a journey to the past this spring with “Anastasia” at Walton Arts Center. The adventure-filled musical is on its first national tour and will stop in Northwest Arkansas for eight performances March 10-15.
From the Tony Award-winning creators of the Broadway classic “Ragtime” and inspired by the beloved film of the same name, “Anastasia” is a new Broadway musical that transports theatregoers 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, and 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, according to a press release.
