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

My Uncle Arly
By Shôn Dale-Jones and David Farmer
Shôn Dale-Jones, director
West Coast Premiere
One of Britain’s favorite writers, Edward Lear has delighted generations of children and adults alike with his deliciously silly and brilliant nonsense verse. Now, Hoipolloi invites audiences on a journey into Lear’s weird and wonderfully witty imagination as he embarks on an adventure towards the great Gromboolian plain. Inspired by his life, poems and illustrations, My Uncle Arly is an inventive and engaging production full of music, song and clowning that delves deep into Lear’s Victorian sense of humor. Filled with some of his best-loved characters, the show creates a stupendously mad and gloriously giggly world where easels become birds, hats fly and where we meet the pobble who has no toes and the dong with the luminous nose.
