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

In December 1940, two Kentuckians meet cute on a very special train heading east bound for New York. Raleigh is a soldier facing medical discharge (he’s an epileptic) who aspires to become a writer; May has deeply religious feelings and wants to be a missionary. They’re two very different people, but as the story of Arlene Hutton’s 1999 play unfolds, the audience will witness Raleigh and May’s growing mutual attraction over the course of a couple of years in this unusual love story, which Hutton claims she loosely based on the romance between her own parents.
Hutton is a remarkably prolific playwright whose other works include Women@Work_, Lights Up!, Corbin, Kentucky, As It Is in Heaven, Academia _and much more.
The show runs approximately one hour and 40 minutes with no intermission.
