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

Wonderful show! Lyla performed to a small house like she were performing to a sold-out crowd! Very powerful story! And great comic moments! Definitely give this performer and chance and support Lyla!
You will be glad you did!
Quotes & Highlights
“Wylie establishes himself as a master at milking laughs.” —LA Weekly
“The hype doesn’t even begin to cover this show! Creative, funny, insightful. Lyla is intelligent, witty, and played with such abandon that you cannot help but fall in love with her.” —examiner.com
“There’s a sweetness to this piece that distinguishes it from so many ‘drag’ shows that revel in camp and cattiness. Wylie inhabits this lady of the towering roller-curled red hair with nary a wink about gender—Lyla is all woman and refreshingly positive.” —WSWS.com
Texas Loves Lyla! gets extended, again at Theatre Asylum, after a successful run at the Hollywood Fringe and Best Of. As south Texas’ #1 talk radio queen, Lyla KaRug hits the web, tackling ignorance, adult bullies, and gay teen suicide. Jeffrey Wylie takes an irreverent and bold approach in addressing the reasons why people bully, and what we can each do in helping the victims of this terrible epidemic. Co-produced with Matthew Quinn and Combined Artform.
