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.

Everything Will Be Different tells the story of teenaged Charlotte, whose beautiful mother is dead, and in the midst of her own grief and her father’s unwillingness to cope, she turns to the story of Helen of Troy for comfort, convinced that beauty, desire and fame can help her bring her mother back and punish the world that took her away in the first place.
