Happy Hour #11 (Part 1): Natasha, Pierre & the Great Podcast of 1812

Come with us to 19th century Russia where we attend the stunning musicopera, “Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812” based on a chapter of Tolsty’s epic ‘War and Peace’.  Seeing as it’s regarded as one of the longest novels, we thought we’d make this one of the longest podcasts - so here’s part 1! We muse about how Comet will leave its mark on the future of musical theatre, whether it’s Mosc-OH or Mosc-OW, and generally bask in the brilliance of Mr Dave Malloy!
