- More about Pippin
This unforgettable new production is the winner of four 2013 Tony Awards, including Best Musical Revival. Pippin incorporates sassy Fosse-style choreography and exciting circus feats; the Big Top set and high-flying acrobats add to the spectacle, along with knife throwing, hula hooping and gravity-defying balancing acts.
The magical score from Oscar- and Grammy-winning songwriter Stephen Schwartz (Godspell, Wicked) includes such hits as “Magic to Do,” “Corner of the Sky,” “Morning Glow” and “No Time at All.” Join us for this tale of a young prince’s search for passion, adventure and the meaning of life – it will be unlike anything you have ever seen.
Special effects: haze, cigarette smoke, pyrotechnics
