Charles Isherwood, THE NEW YORK TIMES

(New York, NY – April 14, 2017) The new Broadway musical NATASHA, PIERRE & THE GREAT COMET OF 1812 and Reprise Records will release an original Broadway cast recording, featuring Josh Groban as ‘Pierre’ and Denée Benton as ‘Natasha’, May 19, 2017.  The 2-CD and digital album will be available for preorder today on all participating retailers and joshgroban.com.
Featuring 38 cast members and the full GREAT COMET orchestra with Groban playing both the accordion and the piano throughout, the original Broadway cast recording will be released as a two disc set and will feature the Broadway score in it’s entirety. The album was recorded at DiMenna Center New York on February 12 and 13 by Kevin Killen, who has worked with such artists as David Bowie, Paul McCartney, Elvis Costello, Peter Gabriel, Burt Bacharach, Dar Williams and more.
Created by Dave Malloy (Ghost Quartet, Preludes) and directed by Rachel Chavkin (Hadestown, Artistic Director of The TEAM), THE GREAT COMET stars multi-platinum recording artist Josh Groban in his Broadway debut. Inspired by a 70-page slice of 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.
“One of the decade’s best musicals” (Time Out New York), THE GREAT COMET has “rousing music and ravishing performances” (Daily News) with a groundbreaking score that mixes rock, pop, soul, folk and electronic dance music with classic Broadway. THE GREAT COMET arrives fresh off its sold-out run in Boston and its critically acclaimed Off-Broadway premiere. Its renowned creative team has reimagined the Imperial Theatre as an opulent Russian salon, where every seat provides a unique perspective and an unforgettable experience which is “thrilling, a feast for the sense” (Associated Press) and “inventive, ravishing and full-on romantic” (New York Post).
