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

Let me get one thing straight right off the bat: expectations were high. Perhaps too high. Having thoroughly enjoyed Urban Death twice, I have become a fan of ZJU. LOVE Urban Death. This, not so much.
While fans of mindless zombie flicks will love it, I found the story completely forgettable--in fact, I forgot it a long time ago. Something about an apartment complex in which everyone turns into zombies. Oh, and dogs. Zombie dogs. Cute, perhaps the most memorable characters on the stage. The non-canine ("human" seems inadequate) characters lacked any sort of depth and the story--well, was there actually one? I don't think so. Not one that mattered anyway.
The blood and gore was, in classic ZJU style, greusome and gross. Exactly what most of the audience probably came to see. I however wanted more.
Campy zombie stories are a dime-a-dozen on Netflix. Having enjoyed the twisted, playful and artful masterpiece of Urban Death, I expected more--and was sorely disappointed with this piece. It was utterly one-dimensional and forgettable. None of the mind-bending, psychological thrill-ride that made Urban Death so magical, and no meaningful story to speak of.
Yes, I keep comparing it to Urban Death. Perhaps that is not fair to 'Attack of the Rotting Corpses'. What can I say--the bar was high, and at least to me, this fell well short of the mark.That said, I will not write off ZJU productions any time soon. I know the genius is there--I have witnessed it, and I will be back for more!

This was one of the worst performing arts activity I have ever attended. The first thing is that it is not funny. The banter between the security guards was just inane. There was some laughter in the audience, but I think the people laughing were...continued
