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

Set in the dead of winter in Baraboo, Wisconsin, The Butcher Of Baraboo, tells a tale of family secrets, a very big knife…. and a whole lot of caffeine. It’s February 17th and local butcher Valerie (Carlyle King) is marking the one-year anniversary of her husband’s mysterious disappearance. Knowing she is the target of local gossip and suspicion, Valerie hopes the day will go by quickly and quietly. But her hopes are dashed before the end of the first cup of her morning coffee when she learns not only that her misfit 32 year-old daughter and Walgreen’s pharmacist Midge (Nina Sallinen) is selling drugs to the junior high students, but also that her prodigal brother-in-law Donal (Carl J. Johnson) has returned to town and moved in next door with his young wife Sevenly (Jenny Kern) and their six children. To further complicate matters, Valerie’s begrudging sister-in-law and town police officer Gail (Rebecca Jordan) can’t seem to stay away, seeking out free meat, overdosing and botching her attempted suicide. It’s cold, it’s crowded, and it’s caffeinated… what’s a woman with a meat cleaver to do?
