From October 16th to October 21st the timeless classic, Anastasia returns to The Benedum Center as part of the PNC Broadway Series in Pittsburgh.
A Timeless Classic
Anastasia is a musical adaptation of the legend of Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia, who could have escaped the execution of her family. Enter Anya, an orphan with amnesia who friends two conmen in hopes of retracing her family tree. It is more lighthearted than the actual story. Anastasia is a fantastic story filled with drama and the meaning of family.
