Nicholas Belton performs double duty in one of Broadway's biggest hit musicals, Natasha, Pierre, and The Great Comet of 1812. Belton plays the dual roles of Prince Andrey (a solider in the war and the fiance to the title Natasha) and his father, Old Prince Bolkonsky (an eccentric old Russian).
BroadwayBox recruited Belton (who also curates the lifestyle blog Sunday Theory) to take over the BroadwayBox Instagram on Saturday, February 4 and give followers a glimpse of life behind the scenes during a two-show-day at The Great Comet. Scroll on for the fun backstage pics and videos.
My mornings don't usually start with baking confectionery treats. Right when I wake up I head to the gym for a quick workout to wake up my mind + body. Every morning without fail, I blitz up some sort of green smoothie. Today it looked like this. How do you start your day? #greensmoothie #coffeelater #GreatCometTakeover
After saying Hi at the stage door and grabbing some food I often do some work in my dressing room in between shows. I have a blog called @sundaytheory_ and love sharing my recommendations from recipes to travel spots to healthy living ideas with all of you. Listening to music and writing is a great way to get my mind off of other things (like my mic going out during my last song today PS thanks for all the kind words. Hopefully it wasn't as bad as I thought. Ah well, that's live theatre for ya!) Today I just posted my '5 Favorite Date Night Spots in Midtown NYC'. Check it out if you're looking for a unique cocktail and bite to eat before or after seeing @greatcometbway! #GreatCometTakeover
I'm a mover + a shaker and just don't do well being sick so I eat as clean as I can to keep a healthy gut. Look up how your gut is like your "second brain" and influences your well being. Tonight's dinner is spaghetti squash salad with chickpeas, brussels sprout slaw, and herb dressing from @twoforksnyc What are you guys having for dinner? #GreatCometTakeover
Show time! Thanks for all the awesome takeover request on my twitter! I know a lot of you wanted to see my quick changes backstage but the problem is they are really quick and I don't have much time! I'll try to get some more backstage footage for this 2nd show. For now - places! #AndreyIsntHere #GreatCometTakeover
Woo two shows done - I'm a bit tired, how about you? We had 2 awesome shows today thanks to our awesome cast mates, crew, SM team, and of course our amazing audiences!!! Thank you for following along, I've loved showing you a sneak peek of my day at @greatcometbway and huge thanks to @broadwayboxcom for having me! I'm off to have a quick night cap with a couple friends and home to snuggle my sweet real life fiancée. Have a great night everyone! #AndreyIsntHere #GreatCometTakeover
