Anastasia features a score by Tony winners Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, who wrote the songs for the 1997 animated feature, including their Academy Award-nominated stand-out, “Journey to the Past.” The musical has a book by the late Tony winner Terrence McNally, who also collaborated with Ahrens and Flaherty on the Tony-winning musical Ragtime.

Stars in the House launched March 16 last year to promote support for The Actors Fund and its services in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. It has also raised funds for the NAACP's Legal Defense Fund in support of the Black Lives Matter movement as well as Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

New shows—streaming Tuesday–Saturday at 8 PM ET—feature performances by stars of stage and screen, in conversation and song with Rudetsky and Wesley. Peter Flynn serves as streaming director.
