New Broadway Musical “Anastasia” at Count Basie Center for the Arts
The Hackensack Meridian Health Theatre at Count Basie Center for the Arts presents the new Broadway musical Anastasia on February 1 and 2 at 7:30 p.m. Ticket prices range from $49-89.
Inspired by the beloved film, the romantic and adventure-filled theatrical production of Anastasia is premiering in Red Bank at last! From the Tony Award-winning creators of the Broadway classic Ragtime, this dazzling show transports viewers 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 score by Stephen Flaherty (music) and Lynn Ahrens (lyrics) based on original direction by Tony Award winner Darko Tresnjak, with choreography by Peggy Hickey and tour direction by Sarah Hartmann.
