Quotes & Highlights
The original Broadway production of _Pippin _ran for more than four years and 1,944 performances, earning 11 Tony nominations.
What does it mean to live an extraordinary life?

While the Players strive to steer Pippin towards the perfect, theatrically tragic end of his story, Pippin begins to discover what it truly means to be extraordinary in our world.
Full of dance, passion, and Schwartz’s iconic music, _Pippin _is the ultimate theatrical experience that will leave audiences debating what boundaries are crossed for love.
