Natasha Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812
Nominated for 12 Tony Awards including Best Musical (2017), Theatre Wesleyan will be one of the first institutions in the country to produce this electro-pop opera about redemption and renewal of the soul based on a scandalous slice of Leo Tolstoy’s War and Peace.
Natasha is a beautiful ingénue visiting Moscow while she waits for her beloved fiancé 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. This production contains gunshot sound effects and mild adult themes.
A reception will follow the performance. Tickets are only available through the box office at www.txwes.edu/theatretickets.
