Anya - 1965

Anya - 1965

"My first Broadway musical and I loved "Anya". It is the story of a great legend of our century, the czar and his family and what happened to them.

We had Rachmaninoff's music and it was so beautiful. We also had voices from Metropolitan Opera singing the music and we had Constance Towers who was a lovely "Anya".

We played "Anya" previews in New York for three weeks (the production was too expensive to tour) and did sell-out business until we opened and the critics turned thumbs down on us. I don't know why."

(Dorothy and Lillian Gish - By Lillian Gish)
