The Great Comet

Critics = 3.9 / Audiences = 5.0



New in 2016
Grammy nominee Josh Groban stars in an inspired and critically acclaimed musical adaptation of Leo Tolstoy's "War and Peace."

From the producers Natasha is young, Anatole is hot, and Andrey isn't here… but what about Pierre? Natasha is a beautiful ingenue visiting Moscow while she waits for her beloved fiancee 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.

Audience Note: Strobe lights are used in this production.

"Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812" (shortened to "The Great Comet") premiered in New York at Ars Nova Theatre Off-Broadway in 2012, and moved first to a tent in the Meatpacking District of Manhattan in May 2013, and then the tented production moved to a vacant lot in the Times Square theatre district later in 2013. In 2015 the show was restaged at American Repertory Theatre in Boston, expanding the show's signature intimate staging to a traditional proscenium-style theatre.



Josh Groban will play his final performance on 7/2. Beginning 7/3, original "Hamilton" cast member Okieriete Onaodowan will assume the role.

Josh Groban will not appear at the following performances:
5/4 7pm**
5/5 8pm**
5/6 2pm** & 8pm**
5/7 3pm**
5/9 7pm**
5/16 7pm**

6/20 7pm**
6/27 7pm**

**Dave Malloy, who originated the role of Pierre in the show’s initial Off-Broadway runs, will step into the same role for these performances.


The cast of "The Great Comet" is headed by Grammy nominee Josh Groban, who makes his Broadway debut as Pierre. The acclaimed singer will be joined by Denee Benton, who is also be making her Broadway debut. Benton will reprise the role of Natasha that she played in the previous engagement of the musical at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge.
