Cast members from the Broadway production of Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812 will be part of the W Hotel in Time Square’s Broadway at the W lineup. The series, produced by 42 Seven Productions in partnership with W New York – Times Square, offers intimate and acoustic evenings with the stars of Broadway, television, and music.
Broadway at the W with the cast of Great Comet will take place August 27 at 7:30 PM at the W New York Times Square, located at 1567 Broadway.
The evening will feature performances by Courtney Bassett, Nicholas Belton, Kennedy Caughell, Ashley Pérez Flanagan, Alex Gibson, Brad Giovanine, Bill Kiessling, Blaine Krauss, Dave Malloy, Mary Page Nance, Shoba Narayan, Pearl Rhein, Cathryn Wake, and Lauren Zakrin. Great Comet creator Dave Malloy will also be part of the celebration.
As previously announced, Great Comet is set to end its Broadway run at the Imperial Theatre September 3. The show, which received 12 Tony nominations (winning two), is a musical retelling of a chapter of Tolstoy’s War and Peace. The unconventional production completely transformed the Imperial into an opulent Russian salon, with audience members seated among the action.
Great Comet is created by Malloy (Ghost Quartet, Preludes) and directed by Rachel Chavkin.
