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

This is a good opportunity to see a seldom produced play, and to be challenged as an audience member. For theatre buffs, and students of theatre history, I suggest first delving a little into the historical context of not only the story's origin, but the effect that it had on key writers of the time. Jean Genet is know as a writer of the theatre of the absurd...a theatrical style of the time. A quick Internet search will give audience members more context and understanding while watching the show.....which is still relevant on its own merits as a story and exploration of human behaviors and heightened affects of oppression.
Quotes & Highlights
“Nicole Erb and Rachel Kanouse take Genet’s 90-minute one-act to even creepier depths. Director Armina LaManna’s deliberate pacing helps create an overall sense of unease, as though the actors have lost themselves in the characters, who, in turn, have lost themselves inside a twisted, waking nightmare.” —backstage.com
“The actors skillfully and meticulously navigate the shoals of shifting fantasy and reality.” —_LA Weekly _
