"And this bright star
Having traced its parabola
With inexpressible speed
Through immeasurable space
To have stopped
Like an arrow piercing the earth
Stopped for me"
-Pierre, "Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812"
John and John sit down to talk about the visually and technically stunning "Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812".
They get into the one-of-a-kind staging, integrating the band into the set and audience, and the subtle brilliance that is author/composer Dave Malloy.
