Anastasia is one of my all-time favorite animated movies, which is why I was overjoyed when I heard that it was being turned into a broadway musical.

Broadway's Anastasia just released a footage from the opening show and Once Upon a December is just beautiful 😭💖— Patricia Yraola (@patitaliongson) April 25, 2017
Anastasia on Broadway was absolutely beautiful. The set, the voices, the story. Tons of feels. One of my favorites, definitely. ❤— Melissa (@snapsformel) April 19, 2017

i want to see Anastasia on Broadway so badly— luisa turner (@LuisaTurner2) April 25, 2017
Actress Christy Altomare has been cast in the title role, and apparently she's killing it so far.
Important side note: Rasputin[and his little bat sidekick, Bartok] do not appear in Anastasia: The Musical. The writers who adapted Anastasia for the stage thought a more realistic villain was necessary.
"Basically, there’s a new character who represents the Communist Regime. He’s a contemporary, more of a contemporary figure. He’s in post-revolutionary Russia, he’s a Czechist as they called them," songwriter Lynn Ahres told reporters at Playbill.
No Rasputin, which means no "In The Dark of The Night"?! I KNEW they'd find some way to screw up #AnastasiaMusical 🙄😒— Brittanica_1285 (@Brittanica_1285) April 26, 2017
