Today is a very bittersweet and emotional day for the company of Anastasia The Musical as another 2 of it’s original cast members take their final bows this afternoon at the Broadhurst Theatre… We are talking about Derek Klena and Caroline O’Connor.
They may be leaving THE LAND OF YESTERDAY but no worries because both talents have 2 exciting gigs coming up. Klena will be taking part in the world premiere of Alanis Morissette’s JAGGED LITTLE PILL (set to open at Cambridge’s American Repertory Theater this May) and O’Conner will be starring in an upcoming revival of Kander & Ebb’s musical THE RINK (opening in London’s Southwark Playhouse also in May).
Starting this Tuesday night, March 27th, 2018, ANASTASIA Ensemble member Zach Adkins will graduate into becoming a fulltime leading man as he succeeds Klena in the role of the conman turned modern day Prince Charming “Dmitry”. In addition, stage and screen legend Vicki Lewis will succeed O’Connor in the scene stealing role of the wise cracking Countess ?Lily Malevsky-Malevitch? (formerly known from the 1997 Animated film as ?Sophie?).
Happy Trails to Derek and Caroline!! You will be missed.
Welcome and Break legs to Zach and Vicky! Can’t wait.
