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

GO! This writer/performer gives a very powerful and fresh take on many topics surrounding the iconic/mythic subject of Mr. King. An immersive experience (forgive the term) - so just let yourself be drawn in to this memory/nightmare/dream experience. And don't come even 2 seconds late - like the four bozos who were allowed to so rudely break the spell already being cast by Mr. Smith. Also, if you don't want to stay and listen to the words of the closing music, as you are invited to - please be polite enough to take your conversations out of the theatre. Honestly.

seemed to be an excellent presentation, however if you have any audio issues, you need to sit in the first two rows as some dialog is delivered is whispered tones, Will play again in September at another theatre. I will probably see it again. ...continued
