Running since October 2016
A romantic lover's triangle set against the backdrop of 19th century Russia is the story of this 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.

The cast of "The Great Comet" is headed by former "Hamilton" cast member Okieriete Onaodowan as Pierre. He is joined by Denee Benton, who is making her Broadway debut. Benton is reprising the role of Natasha that she played in the previous engagement of the musical at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge.
