‘The Great Comet’ creator reacts to ‘Hamilton’ comparisons

"Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812" has been hailed as one of the most innovative musicals of the decade. The show, inspired by a part of Leo Tolstoy’s “War and Peace,” came to Broadway in the fall of 2016, and has since been compared to last year's musical phenomenon, "Hamilton."

Yahoo Global News Anchor Katie Couric spoke with the Tony nominated stars Josh Groban, Denée Benton, and Lucas Steele as well as Tony nominated director Rachel Chavkin and creator Dave Malloy about the similarities between the two musicals.
