The 1972 musical Pippin—the story of King Charles The Great’s son searching for his own identity amid betrayal, war, and love—has returned to Broadway in a vibrant new production. As Pippin embarks on his quest for fulfillment, he encounters a colorful cast of characters with mysterious motivations, particularly a performance troupe led by the charismatic Leading Player. By turns both comic and sinister, Pippin combines compelling drama with the raw energy of rock ‘n’ roll.
Pippin’s journey is told in the classic Broadway tradition, deftly weaving together story, song, and dance. The Tony-nominated book by Roger O. Hirson is complemented by Stephen Schwartz’s sparkling rock score, which bursts to life with the piano-driven opener “Magic to Do” and continues on to such classics as “I Guess I’ll Miss the Man.” The sounds are matched by spectacle-heavy sights—choreographer Chet Walker joins creative forces with the acclaimed acrobats of Les 7 Doigts de la Main to compose high-flying set pieces featuring trapeze work, graceful contortions, and perfectly timed juggling. The lavish revival has been met with widespread acclaim, taking home the 2013 Tony award for Best Revival and praised by the Daily News for having “everything you could dream of in a musical…and a few things you couldn’t even imagine.”
Hippodrome Theatre at the France-Merrick Performing Arts Center
For the 100 years since the Hippodrome Theatre opened, it has served as a combination movie palace and vaudeville theater, spending more than 70 years hosting big names such as Bob Hope and Frank Sinatra. Following a double-decade period of slow business and bad hairstyles, the Hippodrome Theatre closed in 1990. Now, however, after an exhaustive restoration project that reanimated the theater’s chandelier-lit arches, the mural above the proscenium stage, and the grand-theater boxes that hark back to opera’s heyday, the Hippodrome Theatre reopens to the delight of Baltimore’s cultural landscape.
