NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:

"The clash of armies is not to be heard during “Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812,” the vibrant, transporting new musical adapted from a potent slice of Tolstoy’s “War and Peace.” True, Napoleon is nominally present, presiding with a stern semi-smile over the proceedings from within a copy of a Jacques-Louis David portrait. But the roiling sounds of battle do not intrude on the romantic drama unfolding before us in Dave Malloy’s freshly imagined pop opera, which opened on Thursday night at a custom-built cabaret called Kazino, in the meatpacking district."

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY REVIEW:

"What's Russian for chutzpah? Whatever the word, Dave Malloy has enough of it to fill all of Siberia. Who else would dare to adapt Leo Tolstoy's doorstop of a novel War and Peace into a two-and-a-half-hour sung-through pop opera called Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812? Let alone orchestrate it himself, then star as the dissolute Moscow aristocrat Pierre, who's drawn into the drama surrounding a too-easily corrupted young countess named Natasha (Smash's Phillipa Soo)."

ASSOCIATED PRESS REVIEW:

"What do you get when you take a 70-page melodrama at the center of "War and Peace" and turn it into a musical? Now layer dance music onto the traditional Russian folk music. Now put it in a tent. While you're at it, throw in a meal and strobe lights."

VARIETY REVIEW:

"As Russian supper club entertainment goes, “Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812″ could put belly dancers out of business. In this smartly engineered transfer, Dave Malloy’s innovative musical treatment of (a very thin slice of) “War and Peace” has been installed in Kazino, an ersatz Russian nightclub housed in an elaborate tent set up in the trendy Meatpacking District. The environmental staging (brilliant work by helmer Rachel Chavkin) places the performers on raised platforms and at strategic floor locations among the audience, who sit at tables dining on Russian fare and tossing down vodka shots. “Za Vas!”"

NEW YORK POST REVIEW:

"Last fall’s most exciting sensation wasn’t a big Broadway musical but a scrappy outsider sneaking in under the radar. At first glance, “Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812” looked like it had little chance to make a lasting impression. This sung-through adaptation of a subplot from “War and Peace” — not hot! — featured a cast of no-names. It played fewer than 40 performances at tiny Ars Nova, on the edge of Hell’s Kitchen."
