A behind-the-scenes look at the making of an award-winning musical!
Here is the official, fascinating, behind-the scenes journey of the new musical Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812, from its inception, to Off-Off Broadway, to Off-Broadway, to its premiere at the Imperial Theatre on Broadway. The musical is based on a dramatic 70-page slice of Leo Tolstoy’s War and Peace.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this I first discovered this show based on a sliver of Tolstoy's War and Peace back in March and have since then fallen in love with this unique, diverse show best described as a electro-pop opera. This companion book provides a deeper insight into the great comet's journey and I'm grateful to have it as the comet's journey on Broadway comes to an end in the next week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this I first discovered the great comet back in March. And I've been hooked onto this unique, diverse that is best described as a electro- pop opera. Based on a sliver of Tolstoy's War and Peace this musical is not at all long, and intimidating as is said about its book counterpart. It is a delightful show and this companion only added more to it. And as the show's closing is coming up in the next week, I'm grateful for this companion book.
