Sunday’s crowd in New York City’s Radio City Music Hall and CBS viewers saw Groban alongside co-stars Denée Benton, Lucas Steele and company of The Great Comet in a high-kicking saloon party with renditions of “Dust and Ashes” and “The Abduction” among other songs.
Touted by presenter Keegan-Michael Key as “rock, pop, soul, folk, electronic dance music and classic Broadway,” the show is based on a 70-page section of Leo Tolstoy’s Russian novel War and Peace.
The multi-platinum artist made his Broadway debut as the titular character Pierre. Groban will be leaving the role behind with a final bow on July 2. He will be succeeded by Hamilton star, Okieriete “Oak” Onaodowan.
