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? This is the question that drives Pippin through the adventures of war, sex, politics and love – all the while guided by the malicious hand of the Leading Player. 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.

About the Ticket Supplier: Bohemian Theatre Ensemble

Creating theatre that incorporates the arts as a whole -- Art for art's sake.

To challenge convention through literary originality and eclectic expression while fostering an ever-evolving artistic environment in which people are inspired to learn, think, dream, and feel. To teach others and ourselves how to expand, create, and present art through theatre while reveling not only in the process, but also in the journey.

Being "Bohemian":
Bohemia is not so much a place on a map but a timeless concept that knows no geographic boundaries. The Bohemian recognizes that cherishing all aspects of art is tantamount to progression of mankind as more than just a living being.

The Four Basic Principles of the Bohemian represent their core values:

Truth -- That which is at the core of all things good and soulful
Beauty -- The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance. -Aristotle
Freedom -- Without freedom, no art; art lives only on the restraints it imposes on itself, and dies of all others. -Camus
Love -- Life in abundance comes only through great love.
