Anastasia In Austin Print E-mail
Wednesday, 13 February 2019 02:47

By Amy Elizondo

Many have heard the story of the Grand Duchess Anastasia, but to see it re-told live in front of your eyes is truly an unforgettable experience.

In the classic tale, the Imperial family of Russia is executed by the Bolsheviks in 1917. Anastasia’s grandmother, the Dowager Empress, escapes just before the rest of her family is murdered and is seemingly the only survivor. Flash forward 10 years to 1927, Russia is now under communist rule and the people are poor and starving. There remains a rumor that a member of the Imperial family may have survived; Anastasia is believed to be out there somewhere. We are introduced to Dmitry, an ordinary young man with an extraordinary plan to hire a woman to pretend to be the Duchess Anastasia in order to collect the reward money from the Dowager Empress, who now lives in Paris. Meanwhile Gleb, a Bolshevik soldier, is tasked with discrediting any rumors of Anastasia’s being alive by any means necessary. Dmitry and his colleague, Vlad, have all but given up when they meet a young woman who is looking for papers in order to leave Russia and travel to Paris. The woman says her name is Anya and is an orphan with no recollection of her past, only that she must go to Paris because that is where she thinks her family is. She reluctantly agrees to take part in this plot as a way to get to Paris and search for her family. On the way there, she recounts a few memories and both she and Dmitry are convinced that she may actually be the real Duchess Anastasia Romanov. Once in Paris it’s a race against time to see if they can convince the Dowager Empress of Anya’s true identity before she is caught by Gleb.

The technical aspect in regards to the sets and backdrops of the musical are what really steal the show. Each scene transports you to a different location. Whether it was a Russian palace in 1910, a train station, or the Eiffel Tower in 1927, the production elements are set up to make it feel as though you were actually there. Lila Coogan (Anya) is amazing to watch on stage; her vocals are impeccable and her acting is captivating. The entire ensemble is remarkable and they add to the scenes in subtle albeit impactful ways. The second act of the musical is very charming, mostly due to the Countess Lily, played by Tari Kelly. She really is the life of the second act and it's a lot of fun to watch her. Everything came together so beautifully in Anastasia. It is definitely a show you do not want to miss!

Anastasia runs through Sunday, February 17th. To buy tickets, click here or call (800) 731-7469.
