Andrey may have left, but the Great Comet deserves to stay
As most of the theater community has heard, Natasha, Pierre, and The Great Comet of 1812 is to close on September 3rd, 2017. This news is heartbreaking for it was the most nominated show of the tony season. As an expierienced audience member, I have seen the show and let me tell you, it is honestly the best musical from this past season. You can never relive The Great Comet for its originality. Wherever you sit in the theater, there is interaction. And when I say everywhere, I mean EVERYWHERE. This show is an original masterpiece by Dave Malloy (who by the way wrote EVERYTHING FOR THIS SHOW. a.k.a orchestrations, book, lines, and etc.) It would be such a shame for this show to close after all of the years of work that have been put into the show. Never again can you find a show so original and inspiring.
