'Natasha, Pierre' on Broadway: This Josh Groban musical is amazing - NJ.com
The overused phrase "you've never seen anything like it" usually amounts to empty hyperbole, but in the case of the thrilling new musical "Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812," now playing on Broadway at the Imperial Theatre, it really does apply.
Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812 review on Broadway – ‘atmospheric and open-hearted’ - The Stage
The complicated narrative, with overwrought romantic plot, is kept in check by delightfully self-aware humour in the direction. Rousing ensemble numbers and delicate ballads sung by Groban and Benton are Malloy's strongest compositions, but many expository songs drag. Malloy's music often feels more coolly intellectual than gripping.
