As Broadway remains dark, BroadwayWorld wants to make sure that you still get your theatre fix each and every day until it's back. In our daily series Broadway Rewind, we're uncovering footage from the depths of our archives so that you can relive magical moments of Broadway past!

The start of July in NYC means just one thing to Broadway fans- the return of Broadway in Bryant Park! Of course, along with Broadway, the series is paused this year, but that doesn't mean that you can't enjoy performances from past seasons.

Today we flashback to 2017, when Anastasia took the stage at Bryant Park for the first time. Anastasia ran for 808 performances at the Broadhurst Theatre before closing in 2019. The cast included Christy Altomare in the title role, Derek Klena, John Bolton, Caroline O'Connor, Mary Beth Peil, and Ramin Karimloo.

Anastasia transports us from the twilight of the Russian Empire to the euphoria of Paris in the 1920's, 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 con man and a lovable ex-aristocrat. Together, they embark on an epic adventure to help her find home, love and family.

Watch below as the original company performs "My Petersburg," "We'll Go From There," and "Journey to the Past" and click here for even more performances from Broadway in Bryant Park.
