Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812
7:30pm / MainStage Theatre, Fort Lewis College
To conclude the 2023-24 FLC Theatre season, you will be transported to Moscow, Russia. The year is 1812. The setting - Leo Tolstoy's novel, War and Peace. Don't worry, we are not doing a musical encompassing the entirety of Tolstoy's epic work, but rather a 70-page segment, which was adapted into the Broadway hit musical, Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812. Composer/lyricist Dave Malloy's adaptation focuses on "Natasha's romance with Anatole and Pierre's search for the meaning of his own life" (NY Post).    Great Comet got its start with Ars Nova in 2012. The production was directed by Rachel Chavkin and featured show creator Dave Malloy as Pierre. It then transferred to NYC's Meatpacking District the following year. After favorable reviews and enthusiastic word-of-mouth, the immersive production was mounted in a tent erected in the Manhattan Theater District before eventually making its way up to Broadway in 2016. The Imperial Theatre production starred Josh Groban and Denée Benton and received twelve Tony Award nominations. The show has gone on to play in professional and university theatres internationally to great acclaim.   Great Comet will honor the original immersive spirit of the show with the company using the entire theatre as its stage. This will be the Four Corners premiere of this unique show, and one you will not want to miss.   Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812 features a cast of twenty including Harrison Wendt as Pierre and Katelyn Bowie as Natasha. The production is directed by Michael E. McKelvey and choreographed by Suzy DiSanto. Great Comet will also feature a live ten-piece orchestra under the baton of Dr. Wesley Dunnagan. The remainder of the creative team includes set and lighting designer James Padilla, costume designer Megan Sander, and sound designer Logan Roybal.    Dates: April 3-7, 2024 (April 3-6 @ 7:30pm; April 6 @ 2pm; April 7 @ 5pm) Location: MainStage Theatre, Fort Lewis College Tickets: $10-25,
