  Run Time: 2 Hours and 15 Minutes (with a 15-minute intermission)

About the Show

By Dave Malloy
Adapted from War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy
Directed by Victoria Bussert

A sensational slice of Leo Tolstoy’s War and Peace lends inspiration to this bold, imaginative electropop opera from award-winning composer (and Lakewood, OH native!) Dave Malloy. Young, impulsive Natasha, bewitched by handsome and cunning Anatole, falls to scandal. Family friend Pierre, a middle-aged man struggling with his own demons, must pick up the pieces to restore her reputation. This critically acclaimed, Tony award-winning musical is a lively, breathtaking and unforgettable theatrical experience.

9/28/23 Pre-show Salon Discussion is cancelled due to Marquee Moments event occurring in Playhouse Square on the same evening.

Immerse yourself in the intoxicating story of Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812 with our onstage seating!
Enjoy this vibrant musical extravaganza from a new perspective in the Hanna as the performance surrounds you with two unique seating options mere inches from the action.

ONSTAGE CAFÉ SEATING: Enjoy every captivating moment in comfort with our Onstage Café Seating. Set on the lowered thrust area of the Hanna Theatre stage, these cozy tables and chairs offer an up-close experience that will leave you spellbound.

ONSTAGE BAR SEATING: Get the ultimate front-row seat as you sidle up to the left and right side of our extended stage floor in one of our Onstage Bar Seats. This location has bar-height stools and a convenient drink rail for refreshments, providing a festive atmosphere mere inches from the magic on stage.
