'Anastasia' Hits Broadway Just In Time for Tony Noms

'Anastasia' Hits Broadway Just In Time for Tony Noms

When the Tony Award nominations are announced May 3, Connecticut will rejoice.

So many Broadway shows this season had world premieres, readings or workshops in the state that some warm reflective glow from Tony recognition is inevitable.

The musical "Anastasia," which had its world premiere at Hartford Stage a year ago, finally opens at the Broadhurst Theatre on Broadway April 24, just in time for Tony consideration. The show is directed by Hartford Stage's artistic director Darko Tresnjak, who won a Tony in 2014 for directing "A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder" — another show that world-premiered at Hartford Stage before Broadway.
