Rose Weaver has impeccable credentials: a highly respected actress, singer, and writer, whose star turn as Aunt Ester in last season's 'Gem of the Ocean' at Trinity was transcendent. Alas, the world premiere of her new play, 'Silhouette of a Silhouette' at the Wilbury aims high, but never quite soars.

NATASHA, PIERRE, AND THE GREAT COMET OF 1812 Extends at Wilbury Theatre Photo NATASHA, PIERRE, AND THE GREAT COMET OF 1812 Extends at Wilbury Theatre

Wilbury Theatre Group presents Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812; an electropop opera based on a scandalous slice of Leo Tolstoy's War and Peace, from the celebrated and award-winning composer Dave Malloy (Beowulf – A Thousand Years of Baggage, Three Pianos and Ghost Quartet).

When Dave Malloy’s NATASHA, PIERRE, & THE GREAT COMET OF 1812 closed on Broadway in late 2017, fans of the show (myself included) lamented when, or if, it would be possible to see any iteration of this show again. Thanks to the Wilbury Theatre Group, our hopes have been answered! Known for its eclectic score, ranging through music styles from electronic dance music to folk, GREAT COMET featured a 360 degree, interactive experience no matter where one sat in the theatre. And, with a cast who could act, sing, and play instruments, it seemed unlikely that the show would ever have legs in a regional setting. Fortunately, the Wilbury Theatre Group is more than up to the challenge.
