Home Uncategorized Natasha, Pierre, and the Comet will Pitch a Tent in Theater District

You may have seen something about “Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812” in the back of New York city taxicabs. I saw this unusual musical back on July 2nd in a tent pitched in the meat packing district across from the Standard Hotel. It’s part dinner theater, part Russian opera and very unique. It’s a little exhausting but well worth the money and very different than your average theater experience. A few producers were in that night by coincidence, trying to figure out how to move the show uptown. Their answer: the “Natasha” tent will be pitched in that parking lot on West 45th St. between Broadway and Eighth Avenue. Right now the lot is host to a lot of tacky pop up shops. The run is for 14 weeks, they say. But I think it will catch on and stay longer. You’ve got to see this. I only wish David Byrne’s “Here Lies Love” could do this too.
