A new production of Broadway’s coming-of-age musical about a royal heir spurred on by a mysterious group of performers to embark on a death-defying journey to find his “corner of the sky.”
Royal heir Pippin is spurred on by a mysterious group of performers to embark on a death-defying journey to find meaning in his existence. Will he choose a happy but simple life? Or will he risk everything for a singular flash of glory? Pippin features a score by Stephen Schwartz, choreography in the style of Bob Fosse, and acrobatics by Les 7 Doigts de la Main (Traces).
Pippin first opened on Broadway in 1972, winning 5 Tony Awards and playing nearly 2,000 performances. This production began at the American Repertory Theatre in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 2012.
