All reviews josh groban tony nominations entire theatre immersive experience ensemble cast stage table musical styles stage set imperial theater broadway show entire cast opening number amazing production audience participation takes place second act high energy
It hurts to see that this muscial is being hated on because of the energetic plot. Yes, a lot of things are happening at once, which is why I recommend actually checking out the musical before hand (or reading the book because, quite frankly, it’s...More
Knowing nothing about the show prior to buying the tickets, I have to say we picked the perfect Broadway performance to attend. The theatre had been transformed to look like an old jazz club, full of red velour curtains and sepia drawings, glowing chandeliers and...More
I was lucky to see it with Josh Groban. It was a masterful dance of music, comedy & Russian drama. This theatre setting was spectacular. It is a shocking to me that such an incredible production was unable to sustain some internal staff difficulties. A...More
This one was hot and cold for us. Without doubt the staging and creativity are exceptional, some of the best we've seen. The theatre was retrofitted so that the stage and auditorium were merged into a seamless setting where the audience becomes part of the...More
This show is so unique and electric - it's a tragedy that it is closing. I bought the CD and listened and followed the lyrics so I was completely au fait with the story which really paid off as it's a complicated story. Far too...More
This play was full of everything, singing.dancing, people running through the audience,acrobats, lights camera action. I kind of liked it, but I think it suffered when it moved from a small intimate setting to this much larger venue. I get the idea of surround sound/theatre,...More
As a Russian visiting the US, I was deeply offended by the use of my Russian culture, heritage and language. There was so many inaccuracies in the show but what hurt the most was how they twisted a beautiful Russia literature novel into some sort...More
This musical--opera, really--is closing in about three weeks, so go see it while you can. We got tickets for last Wednesday's matinee at half price at the TKTS booth. The staging of this show is like nothing I'd ever seen before. We and about 100...More
They set up the stage and seats as if you are in a lounge with tables and lighting used in the show. There are walkways throughout that the dancers and singers use. There is audience seating on stage where the actors interact with them. The...More
Most exciting, innovative ,uplifting experience. Tragedy that this show is closing! Great story, fabulous acting, beautiful music. Amazingly creative staging, one is never more than a few feet away from the action. Go see it before it closes!!!
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the
affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.

I think anything risqué is sexual suggestion or speaking of sexual encounters. There might be some dancing that's a bit suggestive as well. I don't think it's appropriate for kids under the age of 14-15 just because it might... More
I think anything risqué is sexual suggestion or speaking of sexual encounters. There might be some dancing that's a bit suggestive as well. I don't think it's appropriate for kids under the age of 14-15 just because it might not be understandable to them. The show is a bit difficult to understand in general. The appealing aspect of the show is that it is a spectacle. The story leaves a lot to be desired. Try to get tickets where the tables are if you go. I know I wouldn't have enjoyed it very much if it weren't for the immersed experience that those seats provide.
No problem! The banquette seating has a great view and you can see all of the action. Unlike a lot of shows where the actors are really facing the audience and the stage seating is secondary, this show is meant to be seen... More
No problem! The banquette seating has a great view and you can see all of the action. Unlike a lot of shows where the actors are really facing the audience and the stage seating is secondary, this show is meant to be seen from every angle. There are actually times where the banquettes have actors facing them, while the more traditional audience seating has people's backs.
You are also really close to actors. My mom and I sat in BC 13 and 15 and were feet away from Josh Groban during some of his numbers, which was really amazing. You also have a great view of the whole audience which is really fun because actors run all the way up to the last row of the balcony and from the stage you can see this amazing view of everything that is happening. I preferred it to the orchestra seats I sat in the first time I saw the show.
I would recommend staying towards the center of the stage verse the sides of the banquettes against the walls as those seats looked like they had some of the side view cut off. I loved where I sat, like 3-4 rows up and near the middle or towards the center aisle.

No problem! Some of the subject manner of the story is a little "risqué ", but not inappropriate for those ages. The show is a thrilling whirlwind of masterful performance, so you'll have an experience they'll never forget! I have seen it twice and can't wait to see The Great Comet again. Catch it while Josh Groban is still in the role of Pierre - - he's brilliant. Denee Benton is a jewel as Natasha. The ensemble cast will amaze you--it's a wild circus of singing, dancing, all while the cast plays all of the instruments while acting!! Mind blowing!!!
