Inspired by the classic film, Anastasia follows a young woman’s journey of discovery from Russia to Paris in the 1920s. Pursued by Gleb, Anastasia enlists the help of a handsome conman and an amiable ex-aristocrat.

Von Essen received his first Tony Award nomination for creating the role of Henri Baurel in An American in Paris. He appeared as Magaldi in the 2012 Broadway revival of Evita, and played Enjorlas in the 2006 Broadway revival of Les Misérables.

Karimloo, a Tony nominee for the 2014 Broadway revival of Les Misérables, played his final performance December 3.
