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

I really enjoyed the play. The acting was great!
The only suggestion is that you have to get to the theatre at least 45 minutes early, due to the parking. There is only street parking and that could be a problem.
The theatre was very comfortable.
Award-winning film and television producer Gregory Sabatino collaborated with director Laura Henry on the play selection, choosing John Guare’s work for its power to provoke thought about current affairs in the United States, including the cult of celebrity, the war in Iraq, the treatment of those suspected of terrorism and the Patriot Act among others.
Starring as Artie in The House of Blue Leaves is Jack Conley (Traffic, Get Shorty, L.A._ Confidential, Fun with Dick and Jane, The Closer_, The West Wing, CSI, NYPD Blue among others). Francesca Casale (_World__ Trade Center_, City Slickers, Heartburn, Law and Order, The Equalizer and _General__ Hospital_ among others) stars as Bunny.
