‘Anastasia’ is memorable & inspiring

By Hollyann Gardner
Times-News correspondent

   DURHAM — The national touring production of “Anastasia” at the Durham Performing Arts Center (DPAC) is a stunning show that will be beloved by audiences. With talented actors coupled with gorgeous sets and costumes, this is a production that you cannot miss.
Lila Coogan plays leading lady Anya, a street sweeper who has lost her memories of being a princess, the conflict which the story revolves around. Coogan’s singing voice is beautifully unique, and she perfectly captures Anya’s spunk and determination.
The scheming but dashing male duo Dmitry and Vlad portrayed by Matt Rosell and Edward Staudenmayer, respectively, are delightful to watch. The actors play off both each other and Coogan wonderfully. In addition, Staudenmayer’s chemistry with Tari Kelly, who plays the hilarious Countess Lily, is one of the best parts of the show and will leave have theatergoers laughing out loud.
