Last night I saw Great Comet for the second time! I sat on the onstage banquettes and wanted to share some things I noticed now that I’m familiar with the show.
When Anatole kissed Natasha during The Ball, she raised her hand like she was going to slap him, but wrapped her arms around him instead.
Helene got really upset about Pierre’s imminent demise during The Duel. When she yelled HE WILL KILL YOU, STUPID HUSBAND, she sounded like she might cry.
At one point (I think during Letters?) Lucas Steele randomly held a ridiculously long note to raucous audience applause. When we stopped clapping he gestured for more, and he got it.
Anatole spends an awful lot of time looking at himself in the mirror
Sonya’s dialogue in Sunday Morning came off as her explaining to Natasha that she should be seeing a man.
THE LIGHTING IS SO AMAZING. From the banquettes you can see all the little lights that come on in the orchestra section and the mezzanine and it really adds a lot to the show.
Helene and Anatole were uncomfortably close. They kept caressing each other, Anatole whispered in Helene’s ear a few times, he kissed her on the cheek, and it was wonderfully disturbing.
There was a lot of physicality. Pierre really seemed like he was about to throttle Anatole and I for one was Afraid
Andrey angrily shoved Pierre when telling him not to speak of that again
I love Dave Malloy in the cast recording but his performance has evolved SO MUCH since 2013. He was incredible.
+ some onstage things
I was at the end of the aisle facing Bolkonsky and when he was talking about how people enjoy him during Private & Intimate Life a spotlight came on me and the end of my row and I just stared at him grinning like an idiot while he waved at me and I’m pretty sure he thought I was insane
Actors maintained really long and uncomfortably flirty eye contact with me which I hated but was also fun
I got another letter!
One of the ensemble members condescendingly explained a visual gag about playing someone’s tattoo like a cello to me (which I’m pretty sure is scripted?)
Anatole leaned into one of the rows in front of me to whisper into a woman’s ear and I really want to know what he said
do you think you could do a request on a character that has
teleportation powers for some reason? like they were just born w them and the
team/nick fury literally can’t find her until they set bucky on her, ensuing a
cute lil relationship between them?? thank you if you can!!

A/N: Sorry this request took so long, anon! I tweaked it a little so the reader wasn’t exactly born with powers- it made the story flow a little better I think. I really like how this turned out though–I hope you do too!!!
