Cody Simpson

Major congratulations are in order for Cody Simpson. The 21-year-old star may be busy making new music with his band Cody Simpson & The Tide, but he will also be finding some time to, nbd, star in a Broadway stage musical this fall. It has just been announced that he’s making his Broadway debut as Dmitry in Anastasia!

It’s all starting on November 29, 2018, and his run will go through February 17, 2019.

The beloved musical has been enchanting audiences at Manhattan’s lovely Broadhurst Theatre since April 2017, and this is a cast update we’re super excited about seeing Cody flex another side of his performance talents.

The show, inspired by the 1997 Fox animated movie, follows the story of Anya — or, Anastasia — a lost Russian princess who loses her memory of the grand palace life she grew up in. Dmitry is a character who originally sets out to take advantage of Anya’s confusion. But the two set out on a totally romantic journey to Paris together that changes everything.

Set to a charming soundtrack featuring classics like “Once Upon a December” and “Journey to the Past,” we know this show will have us in tears.

You can pick up tickets for current performances and Cody’s 11-week run on the musical’s website, or by visiting the box office at the Broadhurst Theatre, located at 235 W 44th St, New York, NY 10036.
