Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812, inspired by a 70-page slice of War and Peace, brings us just inches from Tolstoy’s brash young lovers as they light up Moscow in a “heaven-sent fireball" (The New York Times) of romance and passion.

Natasha is a beautiful ingénue visiting Moscow while she waits for her beloved fiancé Andrey to return from the war. In a moment of indiscretion, she is seduced by the dashing (but already married) Anatole and her position in society is ruined. Her only hope lies with Pierre, the lonely outsider whose love and compassion for Natasha may be the key to her redemption… and to the renewal of his own soul.

"One of the decade's best musicals" (Time Out New York), The Great Comet has "rousing music and ravishing performances" (Daily News) with a groundbreaking score that mixes rock, pop, soul, folk and electronic dance music with classic Broadway. Its Tony Award®-winning creative team has reimagined The Imperial Theatre as an opulent Russian salon, where every seat provides a unique perspective and an unforgettable experience.
