Following its acclaimed run at Boston’s American Repertory Theater, this captivating new production comes straight from Broadway, directed by Tony winner DIANE PAULUS (HAIR and THE GERSHWINS’ PORGY AND BESS). It features sizzling choreography in the style of BOB FOSSE and breathtaking acrobatics by LES 7 DOIGTS DE LA MAIN, the creative force behind the nationwide sensation TRACES.
Join us… for a magical, unforgettable new PIPPIN.
Diane Paulus’ new, circus-inspired production of PIPPIN features an acrobatic troupe of performers, led by the charismatic Leading Player. The ensemble cast tells the story of Pippin, a young prince who longs to find passion and adventure in his life. To prove his loyalty to his distracted father, King Charles, Pippin goes to war. But when the Leading Player convinces the prince to fight tyranny, Pippin kills Charles and takes over the throne. Realizing his mistake, Pippin begs the Leading Player to bring his father back to life, and she obliges. The prince falls in love with Catherine, a widow with a young son, and (much to the Leading Player’s chagrin), Pippin struggles to decide whether he should settle down and pursue a peaceful life or continue to make magic with the dazzling troupe of performers. PIPPIN is a high-flying, death-defying hit musical full of extraordinary acrobatics, wondrous magical feats and soaring songs from the composer of WICKED.
This unforgettable new production will lift you up and leave you smiling! Winner of four 2013 Tony Awards® including Best Musical Revival. Hailed by audiences and critics alike this “an eye-popping, jaw-dropping extravaganza” (NY1) is coming to a city near you! Experience PIPPIN, one young man’s journey to be extraordinary.
MATURE CONTENT ADVISORY: Kids of all ages will be enthralled by PIPPIN, but the subject matter is much darker than the version performed in schools, with skimpy costumes, violence and allusions to sex. This production is a great one for teens, but see the musical first before letting your little ones join the circus.
