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
The parking is very disorganized at MTW. Be sure to allow time going in and getting out. On the Atherton side, they are usually line up into the street. It appears there is only one line, but there is normally two. There is just no sign or person to let you know . You may see someone a block away swing their arms, if anything.'S Wonderful info • Apr 21 2014 star this tip starred

Music by Richard Rodgers, Lyrics by Lorenz Hart
Based on the Mark Twain novel, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court
First mounted in 1927, then revived in 1943, “A Connecticut Yankee” contains the last song ever written by Rodgers & Hart (the deadly funny “To Keep My Love Alive”). It’s the story of Martin, a Connecticut resident, who’s knocked out and sent back in time to Camelot when his fiancée hits him on the head with a champagne bottle. After outwitting a sorceress and winning his true bride, Martin returns to the 20th century for a happy ending, but not before singing such rousing classics as “My Heart Stood Still” and “Thou Swell”. “So many fetching songs”, said Alexander Woolcott.
