Natasha, Pierre and The Great Comet of 1812 is a Tolstoy-esque electro-pop opera that follows Natasha Rostova, who arrives in Moscow to await the return of her fiancé from the front lines. When she falls under the spell of the city's most charming rogue, it is up to the disillusioned Pierre to pick up the pieces of her reputation.

The production opened on May 16 and has been honored with several awards including the 2013 Richard Rodgers Award for Musical Theater, a Special Citation from the OBIE Awards, and five Drama Desk Award nominations including Outstanding New Musical and Outstanding Music. It is scheduled to complete its limited run at Kazino on September 1.
