Hold onto your tickets, Vancouver. After being set to become the first Broadway musical to return to the city since the start of the pandemic, Anastasia has been delayed by a year.
The Broadway Across Canada (BAC) show was originally scheduled to run at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre from January 18 to 23, but on December 19, 2021, the performances were postponed in accordance with revised provincial COVID-19 restrictions.
BAC announced Monday that Anastasia‘s Vancouver shows will now run from March 7 to 12, 2023.

“While we are of course disappointed that Anastasia couldn’t open in Vancouver this month as planned, the well-being of our patrons, artists, staff and global community remains our utmost priority. We look forward to being back together at the theatre, very soon,” said Shana Levin, Vice President, Broadway Across Canada, in a release.
