The Magic of Anastasia

For many, the allure of Anastasia remains hard to resist. Anastasia is a tale based on the estranged daughter of a Russian czar who endures a host of problems. Throughout her life, Anastasia remains afflicted by her identity, or lack thereof. No other venue can encapsulate such a tale the way that Broadway does. Whether the powdery snow or the sonic stage, The Broadhurst Theatre served as a platform for the show.


Furthermore, Christy Altomare played the role of Anastasia. Not only was her performance brilliant, the performance captivated the entire audience. In addition, her performance led many to believe she was actually a princess. In a nutshell, Christy executed everything she needed to. By paying attention to detail, she created her poses and administered the Russian accent with the precision of a native language. Moreover, the show entertained people from all over the world. Most people considered it exhilarating. During her performance, she exhibited a nonstop plethora of talents.


Also, the theatre made no secret as to where they got their inspiration from. Beneath the title, an excerpt reads “Inspired by the 20th Century Fox Motion Pictures.” One of the most important interpretations of Anastasia include the 1997 animated picture. The 1997 reiteration also possessed the charisma showcased in the Broadway performance. Also, the show remained full of surprises and plot twists. Another noteworthy rendition includes the 1956 rendition of the classic tale. In this rendition, it starred Ingrid Bergman. In addition, her performance won her an Oscar after a self imposed exile from Hollywood. Reference


Although the 20th century musicals garnered rave reviews and critical acclaim, they paint a vivid memory in the mind of enthusiasts. Today, many people remember them by the time period in which they existed and also by their entrenching aficionados. Performers of those shows faced difficultly getting prepared. Many had to squeeze themselves into corsets half their size. Oftentimes, these performances died young. In contrast, Anastasia remains alive and well. For the most part, Anastasia originates at the Hartford Stage in Connecticut directed by Darko Tresnjak. Darko Tresnjak remains a dominant figure in the industry and he has won numerous awards. To name a few, he won a Tony award for “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder.”
