Josh Groban’s Broadway debut is shaping up to be a hit. According to Variety, his headlining musical Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812 topped $1 million in ticket sales during its first week of previews. It came in at number six on this week’s Broadway top 10.
The pop-opera musical -- an adaptation of a small piece of Tolstoy’s War and Peace -- opened in previews last Tuesday. Josh plays Pierre, the rich yet awkward son of a famous Russian family.
After the previews, the show will officially open on November 14.
