Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812 Win Outstanding Broadway Chorus

Actors’ Equity Association, the labor union for professional stage actors and stage managers, presented Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812 the eleventh annual ACCA Award for Outstanding Broadway Chorus. Equity’s Advisory Committee on Chorus Affairs (ACCA), the ACCA Award is the only industry accolade of its kind to honor the distinctive talents and contributions made by the original chorus members of a Broadway musical.

In reviewing the chorus of each Broadway musical that opened in the 2016-2017 theatrical season, ACCA considered the chorus requirements made by each production’s director, choreographer and musical director; the caliber of technical skill used to execute those requirements; and the unique contributions made by the entire chorus to the overall production.  Past recipients of the ACCA award are the original chorus members of Legally Blonde (2007), In the Heights (2008), West Side Story(2009), Fela! (2010), The Scottsboro Boys (2011), Newsies (2012), Pippin (2013), Beautiful (2014), An American in Paris (2015) and Shuffle Along, Or The Making of the Musical Sensation of 1921 and All That Followed (2016).
