NATASHA, PIERRE & THE GREAT COMET OF 1812 invites you to join Tolstoyâ€™s brash young lovers for an evening youâ€™ll never forget, as vodka flows and passions ignite in Dave Malloyâ€™s electropop opera, ripped from a slice of War and Peace. At once stunning, sensual, and inspired, this singular theatrical event promises â€œa rare and marvelous event: amidst the din of New York, an oasis of artful illumination.â€ (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 Malloyâ€™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 â€“ Phillipa Soo), and the Off-Broadway Alliance Award for Outstanding New Musical.
