Josh Groban Will Make His Broadway Debut in September 2016
Josh Groban is set to make his Broadway debut in the upcoming musical Natasha, Pierre, & the Great Comet of 1812.
The 34-year-old singer has been involved in the Broadway community for some time now and even released an album of musical theater covers called Stages. This will be his first time appearing on the Great White Way though!
“For a first time doing it, I wanted it to be something that was a little less expected, and I wanted it to be a show and a character that forced me to get a little bit out of my comfort zone and do something that people haven’t seen before,” Josh told the New York Times. “To have the opportunity and freedom to take off the hat of ‘me,’ and to dive into a character, is something I think will be very freeing, and very fun.”
The musical is an adaptation of a 70-page section of the classic novel War and Peace. Josh will be playing the role of Pierre and has to play the piano and accordion throughout the show!
