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
“If you can’t have a laugh and a drink on a Saturday night, when can you?” announces a character in “Ecstasy,” Mike Leigh’s devastating portrait of four working-class English friends carousing in a shabby furnished room in northwest London. Over the course of the party, which consumes the play’s second act, nothing much happens except that the characters drink a lot of beer, smoke a lot of cigarettes, become sloppily sentimental and sing songs. But through a wealth of casually dispensed personal detail and naturalistic ensemble acting of astonishing intensity and nuance, “Ecstasy” cheerily bares the soul of a society on a precipice.
