Move Over Meg Ryan! Get a First Look at Broadway’s Anastasia Musical

10 April 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Anastasia, the 1997 hit animated movie starring the voices of Meg Ryan and John Cusack, is making its move from the screen to the stage — and People’s got the exclusive first look at the production.

The new Broadway musical, now in previews at New York City’s Broadhurst Theatre, brings the legend of Russia’s Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna to life.

Newcomer Christy Altomare plays Anya — an 18-year-old amnesiac orphan who, with the help of a con-man Dmitry (Derek Kelna), poses as the long-lost Grand Duchess Anastasia. In doing so, she learns a secret about her past while fighting to secure a future for herself. »

Exclusive: TV’s Beloved Grandmother Mary Beth Peil Helps Bring ‘Anastasia’ to Broadway

7 February 2017 7:30 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Betty White's got nothing on Mary Beth Peil, TV’s beloved grandmother from Dawson’s Creek and The Good Wife, who is busier than ever after wrapping up seven seasons on the latter as the ever-watchful and prudish Jackie Florrick and now doing double duty on stage with back-to-back Broadway productions. 

“It's thrilling, especially at my age,” Peil tells Et by phone. “There is no way to even dream -- as I get older, life gets better, as far as my professional life is concerned.”

“I am now closer to the age of Grams than I was 20 years ago,” the actress, now 76, says of playing the beloved grandmother to Jen Lindley (Michelle Williams) on Dawson’s Creek. “People recognize me as Grams more now than they did then.”
