Things happen which I am no telling. Why spoil the musical.

Anastasia is a remarkable show. Things that make it worth seeing are the following. The cast was superb. Christy Altomare and Mary Beth Peil deserve their Tony nominations. Linda Cho costumes were beautiful. Alexander Dodge scenic design was amazing. Finally the scene between John Bolton and Caroline O’Connor was great.

This is a very enjoyable show to see.
