Broadway's Anastasia will feature a special postshow duet following the January 17 performance, with stars Christy Altomare and Cody Simpson sharing a special acoustic version of "Once Upon a December." Simpson, who remains with the company through February 17, will accompany the duet on guitar.

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.

The company also includes John Bolton, Penny Fuller, Constantine Germanacos, and Vicki Lewis.
