“Who are You?” is the question Anya, or perhaps Anastasia, the lost grand duchess of Russia, must answer. This historical fiction is full of mystery and adventure as Anastasia is trying to remember who she is. Beginning in Bolshevik Russia, Anastasia and two con men Dmitry and Vlad survive a dangerous escape to Paris to find the heartsick Dowager Empress Marie Romanov. Anastasia is not the only one on a path of self discovery. Based on the 1997 animated film; this popular theatrical adaptation premiered on Broadway in 2017 and has continued to inspire audiences all over the world, including Heber.
