Natasha is a beautiful ingénue visiting Moscow while she waits for her beloved fiancée Andrey to return from the war. In a moment of indiscretion, she is seduced by the dashing (but already married) Anatole and her position in society is ruined. Her only hope lies with Pierre, the lonely outsider whose love and compassion for Natasha may be the key to her redemption… and to the renewal of his own soul.
Inspired by a 70-page slice of War and Peace, this "vibrant, thrillingly imagined new musical" (NY Times) brings us just inches from Tolstoy’s brash young lovers as they light up Moscow in a “heaven-sent fireball" (NY Times) of romance and passion. Okieriete “Oak” Onaodowan (recently in Hamilton) will take over as Pierre beginning July 11.
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.
