Are you going to be in the area of midtown Manhattan on Monday, February 13 between the hours of 6:00 and 7:30 pm? Do you love the music of "Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812"? Have you always dreamed of singing on a cast recording? If you answered yes to these questions, you should sign up to participate in the recording of the Broadway cast album.
That's right. "Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812" is recording a Broadway album and encouraging fans to join in. The show, created by Dave Malloy and directed by Rachel Chavkin, is an immersive theater experience based on 70 pages of "War and Peace" starring Josh Groban and Denée Benton.
If you are chosen, you'll get to sing on "Goodbye My Gypsy Lovers" and "The Duel" as well as providing musical accompaniment with the shows infamous shakers on "Balaga". No formal singing or music training is required, which is good news for those of us who cannot sing. And Malloy himself will be on hand to teach the music. Who better than the guy who wrote it?
You'll also get to hear from a panel of actors in the company and get a signed cast photo. What an amazing experience!
If you can't make it, you can always listen to Josh Groban sing "Dust and Ashes" on repeat!
