I had the honor of interviewing Broadway Producer Tom Kirdahy who stated, “Tonight we are launching a series where we are going to bring Broadways’s best out to the Garden City Hotel and give you a slice of what we’re doing in Times Square.”
Terrence McNally, established as one of the greatest playwrights and author of the pubication Anastasia, announced on the stage “It’s just tables and chairs in a bare room,” revealed the quadruple time Tony-winner. “They read through without holding a script or asking for lines. We went through without stopping and… it was pretty damn good.”
The Broadway Production of Anastasia is set to open on Broadway April 24, 2017 with previews beginning on March 23rd.
During his speech McNally revealed, “The myth of whether or not Anastasia survived doesn’t matter anymore because we want to believe in the wonderful fairy tale. I hope you will come see it for yourself.”
