With 12 Tony Nominations and successful productions on Broadway, Japan and Korea, Natasha is young, Anatole is hot, and Andrey isn't here… but what about Pierre? Based on a portion of War and Peace by Tolstoy, this immersive musical attraction, by the highly talented Dave Molloy, is a wild romp with too much vodka, too much dance, and many love affairs. Pierre loves Natasha. Natasha loves Anatole. Anatole loves everyone. Compassion and fury run amuck throughout this fantastic musical extravaganza. Celebrate with a cast of colorful characters seeking glory and redemption.

“One of the decade's best musicals!”
