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

is a celebration of language and the human sprit. It’s an exquisite and provacative exploration of racism within the Black community.
Alma, a dark-skinned African-American woman, and her childhood friend Eugene, a light skinned African-American man, have been life-long friends — yet when their friendship turns to love, the different colors of their skin raise obstacles that become insurmountable.
Are we on the inside what we appear to be on the outside? Are we ultimately victims of the biases and prejudices of our parents, our community, no matter what color our skin?
