The Canadian premiere of Broadway musical “Anastasia” just took place Tuesday night and continues til January 12 at Ed Mirvish Theatre. Cast member Taylor Quick (Anya) and Jake Levy (Dmitry) swung by The New Classical FM to chat about this exciting production. “Anastasia” documents the twilight of the Russian Empire to the euphoria of Paris in the ’20’s as a brave young woman sets out to discover the mystery of her past. She is pursued by a ruthless Soviet officer determined to silence her. Anya enlists the aid of a dashing conman and lovable former aristocrat and off they go on their adventures. This storyline features a strong, commanding female lead character, with gorgeous sets – overall, great for the whole family. Taylor and Levy talk about the logistics of touring, the importance of strategically placed monitors, and more.
