Cast and creatives from Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812 discuss the evolution and success of Broadway’s newest hit musical. Composer/creator Dave Malloy, director Rachel Chavkin, and stars Josh Groban & Brittain Ashford participate in this moderated discussion from Google NYC.
Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812 is adapted from a portion of Tolstoy’s War and Peace, centered on the twin sagas of Natasha, a young socialite whose passionate affair with an officer threatens to unravel her life, and Pierre, an aristocrat experiencing an existential crisis. Their stories intertwine in this genre-bending tale of love, pity, and the power of the human spirit.
