DID YOU KNOW: For Anastasia The Musical’s leading onstage couple Christy Altomare and Derek Klena (Anya & Dimitry), this is not the first time they have shared the stage. They previously performed together in MCC Theater’s revamped Off Broadway revival of Carrie: The Musical playing Sue Snell & Tommy Ross.
For the revamped revival of what was one of the biggest flops in Broadway history, a new song was added into the production “You Shine” written by it’s original composers Michael Gore and Dean Pitchford. It is performed early in the second act when Tommy feels sad of turning down his initial date with Sue after she comes with an idea to bring Carrie White to the prom. To make it up and still have their moment, Tommy takes Sue to the half decorated gymnasium, they have a private prom of their own, and still have their romantic moment.
The revamped revival was met with positive reviews.
Isn’t that a romantic and beautiful song?
Be sure to go see Christy & Derek wow audiences in ANASTASIA this spring. Previews begin March 23rd, 2017 and officially opens April 24th, 2017.
