Breaking News: NATASHA, PIERRE & THE GREAT COMET OF 1812 Will Begin Performances at the Imperial Theatre This October!

Just in! BroadwayWorld has just learned that producer Howard Kagan announced today at a group sales event that NATASHA, PIERRE & THE GREAT COMET OF 1812 will begin Broadway performances this October at the Imperial Theatre (currently home to LES MISERABLES, which will close on September 4, 2016). Grammy-nominated multi-platinum recording artist Josh Groban will make his long-awaited Broadway debut as 'Pierre' alongside Denée Benton as 'Natasha.'

THE GREAT COMET was originally commissioned and developed at Ars Nova in NYC where it had its world premiere in the fall of 2012, and was soon-after transferred to a custom-built venue in the Meatpacking District for the summer of 2013. The show became a sensation and the entire venue was transferred to the Theater District where it continued its run into the spring of 2014.

THE GREAT COMET is a theatrical experience like no other. Malloy's inspired adaptation of a 70-page slice of War and Peace puts audiences just inches away from Tolstoy's brash young lovers, as they light up Moscow in an epic tale of romance and passion.

THE GREAT COMET recently played a limited engagement at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, where its innovative design was expanded to bring the show's signature intimate staging to a traditional proscenium-style theatre.

Casting is by Stewart/Whitley. Additional casting, design team, ticketing info and theater will be announced at a later date. The Original Off Broadway Cast Recording can be purchased on iTunes.

THE GREAT COMET has been showered with rave reviews and a host of accolades, including the 2013 Richard Rodgers Award for Musical Theater, a Special Citation from the OBIE Awards, five Drama Desk Award Nominations, two Drama League Award nominations, a Henry Hewes Design Award, and the Off-Broadway Alliance Award for Outstanding New Musical.

THE GREAT COMET will be produced on Broadway by Howard & Janet Kagan and Paula Marie Black.
