We already saw the multi-talented Josh Groban rock the accordion in rehearsal for Broadway's NATASHA, PIERRE & THE GREAT COMET OF 1812. Now, get a taste of the Broadway newbie's piano skills in his latest sit-down with DISASTER!'s Seth Rudetsky. Check it out below!
THE GREAT COMET recently announced its full cast, featuring the Broadway debuts of 18 cast and creative team members including Josh Groban as 'Pierre' and Denée Benton as 'Natasha.' Created by Dave Malloy (Preludes, Ghost Quartet) and directed by Rachel Chavkin (Small Mouth Sounds, Preludes) -- also making their Broadway debuts -- THE GREAT COMET will blaze into Broadway's Imperial Theatre (249 West 45th Street) beginning in the first week of October with opening night set for Monday, November 14, 2016.
Led by Groban and Benton, the cast of THE GREAT COMET will include Brittain Ashford* as 'Sonya,'Gelsey Bell* as 'Princess Mary,' Nicholas Belton as 'Bolkonsky/Andrey,' Nick Choksi* as 'Dolokhov,' Amber Gray* as 'Helene,' Grace McLean* as 'Marya D,' Paul Pinto* as 'Balaga,' Scott Stangland as 'Pierre' (standby), and Lucas Steele as 'Anatole.'

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.
