Pippin

“…the moment that best combines the show’s heart and wonder is Pippin’s practical and playful grandmother; a scene of pure theatrical bliss as she …urges Pippin to seize the day. This production does the same.”                                                                                      VARIETY

“‘Pippin,’ somehow combines the best of [revisionist and nostalgic] approaches to revival, at once re-energizing this 40-year-old musical with freshness, vitality and eye-popping exuberance without ever [losing] the beloved show’s crucial sweetness and naivete.”                             

THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE

 

As told by a traveling troupe of actors led by the cunning and charming Leading Player, Pippin is the story of a young prince, heir to the throne, who is searching for his own “corner of the sky.” Pippin returns from university certain that he will find a fulfilling purpose in life. As encouraged by the Leading Player, Pippin dabbles in bloody battle, licentious and lusty entanglements, and saavy political maneuvers, only to discover that true happiness is more complicated than he thought. With infectious tunes by Stephen Schwartz and classic choreography from Bob Fosse, Pippin is both a humorous allegory about growing up and a dark tale of the danger of false appearances and empty promises.
