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

Good show. My seat was up top but at intermission I moved closer as there were empyty seats scattered throughout the theatre. Yes, this show is dated, but it is still good to see. I found that Frances Conroy spoke so softly at times that I could not hear her from my original seat. I also thought the staging was odd at times, with the actors speaking while their backs were to the audience. I liked the enthusiasm of the young actor's performance.

Martin Sheen, Frances Conroy and Brian Geraghty to star in The Subject Was Roses. When it comes to family, there are three sides to every story.
A young man’s return from World War II becomes a catalyst for an emotional tug-of-war in which love is a prize and a weapon.. Martin Sheen returns to the play that earned him a Tony Award nomination in 1964; now as the patriarch of a family forced to confront its own privatized emotions and buried truths.
Frances Conroy (Six Feet Under_) and Brian Geraghty (_The Hurt Locker) complete the family triangle struggling to reconnect after years of emotional distance and rediscover the beauty in the simple gift of roses.
