‘Anastasia’ Musical to Close on Broadway on March 31

The stage adaptation of “Anastasia” will end its Broadway run on March 31, the producers said Tuesday.

The musical, powered by the popularity of the animated 1997 film, is about a Russian girl who may or may not be the daughter of a czar.

The show began performances on Broadway in March of 2017; at the time of its closing it will have played 808 regular and 34 preview performances. The show was capitalized for up to $15 million, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission; it has not recouped its capitalization costs.

The show has an unusually ambitious touring schedule, especially for a musical that was not a huge success on Broadway, where it was greeted with several negative reviews. It is now on tour in the United States and running in Madrid and Stuttgart, Germany; there are runs planned in Holland, Korea, Japan, Mexico, Australia and Brazil.
