Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812, on Broadway, starring Josh Groban, beginning September 2016

Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812
Book, Music and Lyrics by Dave Malloy
Directed by Rachel Chavkin
Starring Josh Groban (Broadway Debut)

Broadway, beginning September 2016

Howard and Janet Kagan ("On the Town) and Paula Marie Black are producing.

Natasha is young, Anatole is hot, and Andrey isn't here… But what about Pierre? Based on a scandalous 70-page slice of War and Peace, this new musical is Tolstoy like you've never experienced him before. Step into a glamorous, romantic world of chandeliers, vodka and caviar in the salons and opera houses of 19th century Moscow, where passions ignite as Napoleon's war rages outside the city. With the cast and musicians swirling among audience members, this new musical brings to life the heart of literature's most epic tale of love and fate. [more]
