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
Shipley envisioned _StarCrossed _as a hot-blooded and wildly romantic perspective on the ancient feud. With bawdy humor and extraordinary consequences, the play relates the adventures of the libertine DiSenna and his incestuous passion for his twin sister, Catherine. When Catherine is seduced by the thief, Capulet, lives hang in the balance as love, fortune, and honor are risked on the turn of a card, the edge of a sword. A tale of friendships gone awry and unforgivable acts committed in the name of love.
StarCrossed has been making its way across the county with productions in 2005 in San Francisco at the Phoenix Theatre and Sea Coast Repertory Theater in Portsmouth, N.H. Shipley, who studied under William Gibson (Miracle Worker), has written more than 20 plays that have been performed internationally. Shipley is the recipient of the Drama-logue “Play of the Year” Award for the comedy Caryatids and was a nominee for an NAACP Image Award for Writing in Television. Shipley holds an MFA from Brandies University.
The LA premiere of StarCrossed is directed by Tony Caballero and the cast features Murielle Zuker, Karine Chakarian, Andrea Pandzades, Elizabeth Amman, James Harvey Ward, Patrick Cavanaugh, Ian Carroll, and Rocky Bajwa. The show is produced by James Carey.
