Featured Reviews For Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812


Theater review: Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812 casts a bright new light on Broadway - TimeOut NY
Dave Malloy's mercifully transporting musical Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812 is both a celebration and a cause for it. Mimi Lien's stunning set design transforms the stately Imperial Theatre into an ornate red-and-gold Russian nightclub, with stairs that wind up to the mezzanine, a sinuous catwalk that cuts through the orchestra and musicians planted strategically throughout the space. Members of the cast scatter into the audience and sit next to spectators at cabaret-style tables onstage. Director Rachel Chavkin's approach to the show-spectacular yet intimate, theatrical yet personal-is an ideal complement to Malloy's brilliantly unconventional musical, which breathes modern life into a section of Leo Tolstoy's War and Peace.

Broadway Review: ‘Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812’ With Josh Groban - Variety
"Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812," with Josh Groban and Denee Benton in the title roles, is a luscious, 360-degree immersive experience that feels like being smothered in velvet. After transferring seamlessly from Ars Nova to Kazino, Dave Malloy's innovative musical treatment of a tiny wedge of Tolstoy's "War & Peace" has re-surfaced at the structurally revamped Imperial Theater in a Broadway transfer of the original, wondrously well-staged production by director Rachel Chavkin.

There may be a war going on out there somewhere, but inside the Imperial Theatre, but there is a whole other lush world being created by the team behind this season's NATASHA, PIERRE AND THE GREAT COMET OF 1812. The warm-hearted Russians celebrating happiness, freedom and life eight times a week have been on quite the journey from the show's humble beginnings, and as the tale of romance and war gears up for its big night on the Tony Awards this Sunday, we look back on the many incarnations that led to the show blossoming into a new life on Broadway.

In this febrile climate, do we want societal critique from our theatre or pure escapism?
