Up on the Marquee: NATASHA, PIERRE, AND THE GREAT COMET OF 1812
The new musical NATASHA, PIERRE & THE GREAT COMET OF 1812 features the Broadway debuts of 24 cast and creative team members, including Josh Groban* as 'Pierre' and Denée Benton* as 'Natasha.' Created by Dave Malloy* (Ghost Quartet, Preludes) and directed by Rachel Chavkin* (Hadestown, Artistic Director of The TEAM) - also making their Broadway debuts - THE GREAT COMET will blaze into Broadway's Imperial Theatre (249 West 45th Street) beginning October 18, with opening night set for Monday, November 14, 2016.
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.
