National Tour Of ANASTASIA Comes To Segerstrom Center
Segerstrom Center for the Arts announces that tickets are on sale for the critically-acclaimed Broadway production of ANASTASIA coming to the Center November 5 - 17, 2019. From the Tony Award-winning creators of the Broadway classic Ragtime and inspired by the beloved films, ANASTASIA is a new Broadway musical. This dazzling show transports us from the twilight of the Russian Empire to the euphoria of Paris in the 1920s, 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 conman and a lovable ex-aristocrat. Together, they embark on an epic adventure to help her find home, love and family.
