Inspired by a 70-page slice of War and Peace, this “vibrant, thrillingly imagined new musical” (NY Times) is “stunning and blazingly original” (Entertainment Weekly) and brings us just inches from Tolstoy’s brash young lovers as they light up Moscow in a “heaven-sent fireball” (NY Times) of romance and passion.
The show is performed in an elaborately appointed salon with claret-colored velvet draperies and period paintings adorning the walls. The dazzling score—which covers musical terrain from folk songs through rock, R&B, and house music—captures the story in stirring and surprising ways. The musical is set in 19th-century Moscow, but is straightforwardly a performance in the present. Each scene takes you by surprise; each song takes you for a whirl. In the end, the show, according to the critics, “leaves you beaming with pleasure.”
