Wordless Wednesday- Broadway Anatasia

  Broadway Show Anastasia. 
November is a great time to go into NYC and see a show. 
I stood on the two fer line and got tickets for Anastasia, 
The acting, the singing, the dancing, and the music was outstanding! 
I enjoyed the show immensely!!
( No, not the children's show) 




      The play is based on Russian history and the murder of Czar Nicolas, his wife, and children. The story of Anastasia is based on a legend that one of the children actually survived, had amnesia, and discovers herself in Paris to start a new life! The music and singing was outstanding. LIsten to the Youtube I found.





Watch this delightful trailer for the show from Playbill to hear the amazing singing




    





                           Look what was playing next door!



                     My first choice was Hello Dolly with Bett Midler but I couldn't get tickets.

                 


Here is another YouTube from the 2017 Macy Day Thanksgiving Parade where the cast of Anastasia performed 
( watch the other YouTube first-it's better)



 I'm linking a Russian Recipe to go with this show


                                   Russian Herb and Farmer Cheese Salad

  5. I didn't know it was made into a Broadway musical. We watched the animated version last year when we were learning about Russia.
    Would love for you to stop by and share

  10. The story of the last Tzar and his family is fascinating and tragic, i can see how the story of Anastasia could be a great musical production.

    1. It played down the murders but played up the rumor of Anastasia surviving and re-uniting with her grandmother in Paris
