The Tony-Award-Winning Broadway Musical and Best Broadway Revival
A musical masterpiece with an unforgettable score from four-time Grammy winner, three-time Oscar winner and musical theatre giant, Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Godspell).
Pippin is the story of a young prince and heir to the throne who longs for passion and adventure in his life. The musical uses the premise of a magical and mysterious troupe of performers, led by the charismatic Leading Player, to tell the story of Pippin’s quest. With the encouragement of Leading Player, Pippin gets entangled in political intrigue and dabbles in war and love. In the end, though, Pippin finds that happiness lies not in extraordinary endeavors … but in the unextraordinary moments that happen every day.
Pippin's message is universal and sure to captivate to audiences of all ages. Performed in the round, this updated production of Pippin delivers a truly unique and intimate theatrical experience.
