Description

NATASHA, PIERRE & THE GREAT COMET OF 1812 invites you to join Tolstoy’s brash young lovers for an evening you’ll never forget, as vodka flows and passions ignite in Dave Malloy’s electropop opera, ripped from a slice of War and Peace. At once stunning, sensual, and inspired, this singular theatrical event promises “a rare and marvelous event: amidst the din of New York, an oasis of artful illumination.” (Time Out New York)

 

Since its first production at Ars Nova in the fall of 2012, NATASHA, PIERRE & THE GREAT COMET OF 1812 has become a sensation, meriting expansion this summer to a 199 seat pop-up supper club built specifically for the production in the Meatpacking District. After playing to packed houses since May, producers Howard & Janet Kagan have brought Dave Malloy’s acclaimed electopop opera and its opulent custom venue – Kazino – to the heart of the theater district.

 

Directed by Rachel Chavkin, NATASHA, PIERRE & THE GREAT COMET OF 1812 has been showered with rave reviews and a host of accolades, including the 2013 Richard Rodgers Award for Musical Theater, a Special Citation from the OBIE Awards, five Drama Desk Award Nominations (Outstanding New Musical, Outstanding Music, Outstanding Lyrics, Outstanding Direction of a Musical, Outstanding Costume Design), two Drama League Award nominations (Distinguished Production of a Musical, Distinguished Performance – Phillipa Soo), and the Off-Broadway Alliance Award for Outstanding New Musical.

“Improbably wonderful electro-pop opera… turns out that Tolstoy’s introspective, emotional, impetuous characters take remarkably well to the pop-song format.” –The New York Times

 

“Malloy has written a memorable and modern score that blends Russian folk melodies with pop-music hooks and occasional dance beats.” –Entertainment Weekly

 

“Malloy’s songs are stunning in their bredth…the music careens from Russian folk to thumping house beats to proto-rap.” –Associated Press

 

“The dazzlingly variegated score–which covers musical terrain from folk songs through rock, R&B and house music–captures [the] story in stirring and surprising ways.” –Time Out New York
