There Is a Rumor in St. Petersburg That Anastasia Is Coming to a Stage Near You

The Kansas City Music Hall is a large proscenium theatre with a striking streamline modern interior that seats an audience of 2,400 patrons. The hall presents touring Broadway shows, as well as visiting symphony orchestras, opera and ballet companies, and other events. On March 12th, the Hall brings the Broadway production of Anastasia to the stage.

Inspired by the beloved film, Anastacia 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.

With its opulent settings, dazzling costumes, and a soaring score including the song favorites from the hit animated film, “Journey to the Past” and “Once Upon a December,” Anastacia is the spectacular new musical about discovering who you are and defining who you’re meant to be. Anastacia features a book by celebrated playwright Terrence McNally, a lush new score by Stephen Flaherty (music) and Lynn Ahrens (lyrics) with direction by Tony Award-winner Darko Tresnjak.

Daniel Rafinejad of The Huffington Post called it, “Extraordinary!” And followed with, “It’s an iconic tale of empowerment on Broadway. Anastacia— with mettle, smarts, and a tiny music box— has been changing the world night by night. It is a triumphant celebration of courage, love, and reconciliation, a journey that unfolds with much wonder and joy.”

The New York Observer chimed in, “One of the most gorgeous shows in years! Luscious, lavish, and a joy that leaves you cheering. This is a grandiloquent feast for the senses you won’t soon forget.”

Tickets for shows and events are available by walk-up at the Municipal Auditorium Box Office from 10 am to 5 pm Monday - Friday, all Ticketmaster locations, or charge by phone at 1-800-745-3000.
