Actor, singer and dancer Zachary Bigelow ’18 (Bachelor of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre) was cast in the national tour of “Anastasia: The Musical.” He auditioned one day and joined the company the next day for rehearsal. Bigelow will start as a swing for the tour and eventually perform in the ensemble and cover the role of Dmitry.
Inspired by the beloved films, “Anastasia” transports audiences from the twilight of the Russian Empire to the euphoria of Paris in the 1920s, as a brave young woman sets out to discover the mystery of her past. Pursued by a ruthless Soviet officer determined to silence her, Anya enlists the aid of a dashing conman and a lovable ex-aristocrat. Together, they embark on an epic adventure to help her find home, love and family. With its opulent settings, dazzling costumes and a soaring score including the song favorites from the hit animated film, “Journey to the Past” and “Once Upon a December,” “Anastasia” is a spectacular musical about discovering who you are and defining who you’re meant to be. “Anastasia” opened on Broadway in April 2017.
