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

Quotes & Highlights
“[A] stunning and courageous autobiographical one-woman show … Marie’s vibrant presence onstage is proof that she survived. But more miraculous is the empathy that illuminates her portrayals of the relatives who hurt her.” -Los Angeles Times (Critic’s Choice)
“This truly is a beautiful play … each character stands out distinct and idiosyncratic. Under Geoffrey Rivas’ sensitive and precise direction, this world premiere of what started as a spoken word monologue becomes a fully realized drama … the story it tells is universal.” —Theatre Spoken Here
“Jozanne’s vulnerability as an actor while performing her own life story coupled with her passion for living her life beautifully brings out themes of forgiveness, love and resilience in this spoken word one-woman play. In addition to telling a compelling, thought-provoking story, Beautiful wonderfully exemplifies theater as a powerful tool for social change.” -LifeInLA.com
