Contest: Win the Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812 Cast Recording


Update: The contest is now closed. Thanks to everyone who entered. The winner was picked at random. Congratulations Max Schwager!

One of the biggest off-Broadway success stories right now is Natasha, Pierre and The Great Comet of 1812. David Malloy's immersive musical based on War and Peace started out at Ars Nova in 2012. It then had a special venue in the Meatpacking District built specifically for its second run and it's now playing at the Theater District's supper club Kazino through January 5.

I'm giving away a copy of the new cast recording, which will be released on December 10 and features Malloy, David Abeles, Phillipa Soo, Lucas Steele, and more. In order to win, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post telling me your favorite cast recording. You can also tweet about the contest or retweet one of my tweets about it (if you enter this way, you must be following on Twitter to win). You can enter once each way for a total of two entries. A winner will be chosen at random from all the entries on Friday, November 22, at noon. Please include your e-mail address or Twitter handle in the comments so I have a way to contact you if you win. Good luck!

Right now, the new cast recording of Last Five Years is my obsession! But I so loved Natasha, I can't wait for this cast album!

Ahh, I have sooo many fave cast recordings!! Right now I'll just say I've been listening to 'Kinky Boots' like crazy, it is my go-to fun uptempo listen-to-at-work music. :)

PARADE, 2007 Donmar Warehouse production. It includes all the dialogue and BERTIE CARVEL as Leo Frank. There is no such thing as a better cast recording. @CriticalConfab

Jacques Brel Is Alive and Well and Living in Paris...Natascia Diaz's voice is hauntingly beautiful.

My favorite cast recording is Les Miserables original. @mymusicboxes

I have favourites that come and go, but the one that has remained consistently my favourite for years is Floyd Collins. Adam Guettel's score for that is just stunning in many ways.

It goes without saying that this is a hard question to answer. It should be something Sondheim but my high school self wins for right now and I'll say Chess... how embarrassing. @simplywithstyle

There's nothing like the classic Last Five Years recording. I will say though that the Follies New Broadway Cast recording holds a close second though.

the cast recording I listen to most is probably the Hair Revival, but I think my favorite will always be the original Sweeney Todd
