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

Award-winning Italian comedian Ennio Marchetto, is ENNIO, a one man origami extravaganza! Audiences unfamiliar with the Venetian born Marchetto will be unprepared for what lies in store. Backed by an eclectic soundtrack of the latest hits and using an ingenious assortment of intricate paper costumes that defy description, Ennio morphs into pop culture icons. One moment he is Bruce Springsteen singing ‘Born in the USA’, the next he is Popeye dancing a jig. The list of parodies is endless and the ENNIO repertoire has expanded for the Wadsworth Theatre engagement to include such notables as: Beyonce, Aretha Franklin, Wonder Woman, the (new) Pope, Liberace, Bruce Lee, Britney Spears, the Beach Boys, Billy Idol and more. No one is safe when Ennio picks up his paper cut-outs!
