Mention of Leo Tolstoy’s opus War and Peace is often enough to induce yawns: not this time!
Perhaps that’s because just 70 pages of the 1,225 masterpiece are chronicled in the musical Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812. Its off-Broadway production won rave reviews, and the latest iteration features multi-platinum recording artist Josh Groban as Pierre in his Broadway debut. Opposite him as Natasha is Denée Benton, fresh from her turn in season two of UnReal. The show finds Natasha in Moscow weighing whether to continue her dalliance with a married man as the affair threatens to ruin her reputation. Can Pierre save her from scandal before the comet arrives? Find out at the Imperial Theater. greatcometbroadway.com
