Pippin, Broadway’s high-flying, death-defying hit musical, is full of extraordinary acrobatics, wondrous magical feats and soaring songs from the composer of Wicked. This unforgettable new production, the winner of four 2013 Tony Awards® including Best Musical Revival, tells the story of King Charles The Great’s son searching for his own identity amid betrayal, war, and love. 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, much like an arm-wrestling match between Hall and Oates.
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 “Corner of the Sky.” The sounds are matched by spectacle-heavy sights, including acrobatics and stage magic.
