After dazzling audiences in New York and Boston -- and winning the 2013 Tony Award for Best Musical revival -- this exciting new staging of Pippin comes to the Pantages. This updated version of the Broadway classic infuses the production with amazing acrobatics and wondrous magical feats, along with the music and lyrics of Stephen Schwartz, award-winning composer of Wicked and Godspell. With classic songs "Corner of the Sky," "No Time at All," "Magic to Do" and "Extraordinary," and recreated versions of Bob Fosse's original choreography, this sexy and sophisticated version of Pippin tells the story of the son of Charlemagne, leader of the Holy Roman Empire, who goes on a death-defying journey to find meaning in life. He encounters love, sex, war and politics, and must ultimately choose between a life that's ordinary or a flash of singular glory. Learn More

“Gut-wrenching performances by an extraordinary cast. Brilliant director Michael Brainard balances the heavy emotional tug of war between the two protagonists.” -Tolucan Times
Taking Sides, by Ronald Harwood, is a powerful examination of the denazification trial of Wilhelm Furtwangler, conductor of the Berlin Philharmonic. While no nonsense U.S. Army Major Steve Arnold investigates, Furtwangler fights for his freedom as Arnold dragnets his search for a high profile celebrity guilty of supporting Hitler.
Directed by Michael Brainard
