An exciting, immersive interpretation of Volume II, Part 5 of Tolstoy's classic "War and Peace"
Now in the site-specific venue Klub Kazino, "Great Comet" is even more exciting, original, and theatrical. Composer (and Pierre) Dave Malloy's half opera/kind-of musical score is perfect for the not-so-peaceful incidents from Tolstoy involving affianced Natasha (Phillipa Soo)'s affair with worthless hottie Anatole (Lucas Steele). As at Ars Nova in 2012, the story unfolds in a nightclub setting with the talented cast mingling with the audience. There is meal service before and between acts, but "Comet" is all about Tolstoy, who again here, is fun.
