Multi-platinum recording artist Josh Groban has released “Dust and Ashes” from the new musical Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812 for digital download, and will be available at all digital retailers and streaming services (Apple Music and Spotify). The single is the first chance to preview Groban’s Broadway debut in The Great Comet this fall. “Dust and Ashes” features music and lyrics by Dave Malloy, and will be distributed by Reprise Records.
The Great Comet will open on Broadway this fall, starring Josh Groban as ‘Pierre’ and Denée Benton as ‘Natasha’ in their Broadway debuts. Created by Dave Malloy (Preludes, Ghost Quartet) and directed by Rachel Chavkin (Small Mouth Sounds, Preludes), The Great Comet will blaze into Broadway’s Imperial Theatre (249 West 45th Street) beginning October 18th, with opening night set for Monday, November 14th. Tickets are on sale now and available at Telecharge.com.
The Great Comet is a theatrical experience like no other. Malloy’s inspired adaptation of a 70-page slice of War and Peace puts audiences just inches away from Tolstoy’s brash young lovers, as they light up Moscow in an epic tale of romance and passion.
The New York Times calls The Great Comet “a heaven-sent fireball” (Brantley) and “vibrant, thrillingly imagined” (Isherwood), Entertainment Weekly calls it “a stunning, blazingly original musical,” and the New York Post calls it “inventive, ravishing and full-on romantic.” The Original Off Broadway Cast Recording can be purchased on iTunes.
Tickets for The Great Comet are on sale now and available via Telecharge.com or by visiting the Imperial Theater box office (249 West 45th Street). For groups of 15+, call 1-800-432-7780.
