‘The Great Comet’ Is Coming

by Chris Narloch

If you saw Josh Groban perform live on NBC’s Today Show recently with the cast of his hit Broadway musical ‘Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812,’ you may have wondered where you can get your hands (and ears) on that wonderful music.

Well, wonder no more because Reprise Records will release an original Broadway cast recording of the highly-acclaimed musical on May 19, 2017, featuring Josh Groban as Pierre and Denee Benton as Natasha.

The 2-CD and digital album is already available for pre-order at all participating retailers and at www.joshgroban.com.

Featuring 38 cast members and the full ’Great Comet’ orchestra -- with Groban playing both the accordion and the piano throughout -- the new cast recording will feature the Broadway score in it's entirety.

Created by Dave Malloy and directed by Rachel Chavkin, ‘The Great Comet’ stars multi-platinum recording artist Josh Groban in his Broadway debut.

Inspired by a 70-page slice of Leo Tolstoy’s ‘War and Peace,’ this "vibrant, thrillingly imagined new musical" (The New York Times) is "stunning and blazingly original" (Entertainment Weekly) and brings us just inches from Tolstoy's brash young lovers as they light up Moscow in a "heaven-sent fireball" (The New York Times) of romance and passion.

Hailed as “one of the decade's best musicals" by Time Out New York, ‘The Great Comet’ has a groundbreaking score that mixes rock, pop, soul, folk and electronic dance music with classic Broadway.

After you get addicted to the cast recording, you may want to fly to New York City to see the show, which is currently thrilling audiences at the Imperial Theatre on W. 45th Street.

‘The Great Comet’ arrives fresh off its sold-out run in Boston and its critically acclaimed Off-Broadway premiere.

The show’s renowned creative team has re-imagined the Imperial Theatre as an opulent Russian salon, where every seat provides a unique perspective and an unforgettable experience.
