Like a cosmic event in its own right, “Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812” has spent the summer lighting up the culturally bereft Meatpacking District. A lavish yet rustic pop-up tent is home to this immersive masterpiece that combines song, dance, drink and dining. Heartfelt writing and sumptuous staging perfectly capture the equal parts tumultuous joy and senseless tragedy of Tolstoy’s “War and Peace.” To secure tickets before the lights go out, visit Kazinonyc.com through Sept. 2.
