The new Anastasia star begins performances November 29.
Broadway's Anastasia has offered a first look at pop star Cody Simpson in his costume for the role of Dmitry. Simpson begins performances on November 29 for a limited run through February 17.
Simpson joins a cast currently led by Christy Altomare (Anya), John Bolton (Vlad), Max von Essen (Gleb), Vicki Lewis as Countess Lily, and Judy Kaye (Dowager Empress).
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 animated 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.
