Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet Of 1812 has been a revelation on Broadway. It’s a completely new type of Broadway experience, one that sets the bar high for future productions. Since the show has has been receiving rave reviews from both fans and critics, it’s safe to say that it’s a big hit.
I first saw The Great Comet in previews and while I expecting to enjoy it, it far surpassed what I had imagined. Of course, this led to me obsessively googling all I could about the production- it’s history, the music, about the actors, etc. Isn’t that what everyone does when they fall in love with a Broadway show?
Broadway Wiz recently had the opportunity to chat with Brittain Ashford, who has been with the show from its inception. In fact, Dave Malloy crafted the role of Sonya especially for her!
That’s why I was so excited to receive a copy of the new book Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet Of 1812: The Journey Of A New Musical To Broadway. Written by Steven Suskin and Dave Malloy, this book is a true delight for musical lovers or fans of the show and of the cast.
The beautifully illustrated hardcover book is a great addition to any Broadway collection. It includes behind-the-scenes photos, original designer sketches, the history and evolution of the show, an annotated script by the show’s creator, Dave Malloy and much more. As a bonus, it also comes with a CD that has 5 songs from the Broadway and off Broadway production.
