  • Review of Natasha, Pierre and The Great Comet of 1812

    I just saw "Natasha, Pierre and The Great Comet of 1812 on Saturday night, 2/3/17 with Katie - our long overdue Mother/Daughter weekend in NYC. I was beyond anything I could have imagined. Yes, I read all the reviews and I knew it was going to be special because of Josh, the stage, lighting, music, cast, etc. but I had NO IDEA what it would feel like sitting on stage and experiencing it firsthand. We sat in Banquette seats right side. Josh came out and started the show right next to us. It was great to look down and see 'Pierre's Den" and all the action up close. But honestly, there isn't a bad seat in the theater, the show is so interactive and cast members are everywhere that you don't need to sit "On stage" to appreciate everything in this show.! Amazing to get pierrogis tossed at you, egg shakers, love letters handed to a few lucky ones, and then pages of the book dropping from the ceiling at the end of the show. I couldn't sit still in my seat. The cast and music is phenomenal! I was on the edge of my seat the whole time, especially with my egg shakers! So much fun!!. I heard Josh sing "Dust to Ashes" in his concert and it was wonderful but to hear him sing it in full costume and character is beyond words. His emotion and performance was over the top good!! He's truly amazing! This is definitely a Tony Award Winning performance! To top it off, we did "Stage Door" for the first time. It was so nice to see the cast up close and congratulate them on their performances but the highlight was of course, when Josh came out and signed my program. He's so sweet. It was FREEZING outside that night and from what I now hear he was sick but you would never have known. He's so kind and great to all his fans! Truly an amazing person!! I'm so grateful that I got to go to this show but I think I'm addicted to the music/show and of course, Josh and now want and NEED to go again. This was Katie's first broadway show in NYC.

    PS. I forgot to mention that I was so into the story that I was brought to tears at the end with the scene with Pierre and Natasha. Yes, I had tears running down my face. Crazy it was that good!!

    PSS. Needed to see it again - so just bought my tickets for my next trip. I can't wait!!! See you there Josh!!
