Anastasia's Christy Altomare, Zach Adkins to Perform "At the Beginning" Thursday
Though the song is from the 1997 animated musical, it is not in the Broadway show.
Broadway's Anastasia has announced that after curtain call on the evening of Thursday, November 8, current stars Christy Altomare and Zach Adkins will return onstage for a special performance of "At the Beginning," a song from the 1997 animated film that isn't in the stage musical.
Anastasia opened at the Broadhurst Theatre on April 24, 2017. The musical features a book by Terrence McNally and an original score by Tony winners Stephen Flaherty (music) and Lynn Ahrens (lyrics). Tony winner Darko Tresnjak directs. Ahrens and Flaherty penned the tunes for the 1997 film on which the stage musical is based, and have expanded their score, which contains the songs "Once Upon a December" and "Journey to the Past," for the theatrical production.
In addition to Altomare and Adkins, the company is currently led by John Bolton, Max von Essen, Judy Kaye, and Vicki Lewis. As previously announced, Cody Simpson will take over for Adkins on November 29.
