Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812 was originally commissioned and developed at Ars Nova in NYC where it had its world premiere in the fall of 2012, and was soon-after transferred to a custom-built venue in the Meatpacking District for the summer of 2013. The show became a sensation and the entire venue was transferred to the Theater District where it continued its run into the spring of 2014. In December 2015, the show played a limited engagement at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge where its innovative design was expanded to bring the show’s signature staging to a traditional proscenium-style theatre.
