Anastasia, the new musical from Tony-winning Ragtime, Once On This Island and Rocky songwriters Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty completes its journey from screen to stage this spring in a production that will premiere May 12 at Hartford Stage under the direction of Tony Award winner Darko Tresnjak (A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder).

Their heartfelt 1997 animated musical used the legend of Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia as its inspiration, earning the duo Oscar nominations for Best Original Song (“Journey to the Past”) and for Best Music: Original Musical or Comedy Score. They’ve aligned themselves with their Tony-winning Ragtime collaborator, playwright Terrence McNally, to bring what the writers see as an all-new musical to the stage. When it bows in Hartford this spring, the writers state that audiences will encounter much of what they loved from the film with a more human and historic take.
