Tea and The Great Comet
Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812 during its popular run in the meatpacking district but never had the opportunity. I was excited to find out the show and its Russian supper club Kazino have found a new home in a lavish tent in Times Square with an exciting new addition- a Russian style tea service!
The show is an interactive 'electro pop-opera' based on the novel War and Peace where you sit in a supper club and dine during the performance. It's also supposed to be quite scandalous. Intrigued yet? Imagine sipping tea brewed with a samovar while interacting with the performers. The a la carte Russian tea menu is offered during matinee performances, with sweet and savory options such as scones and sandwiches along with four choices of tea. I have been invited to attend the show in a couple of weeks, and can't wait to share more about it! It's perfect for any tea-obsessed theater lover like myself. Stay tuned!
