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

Watching what they did to this Shakespeare comedy, was actually a tragedy. They set the play in 1950''s America, but didn't change the dialogue to match at all. This made little to no sense, as they did not actually have slaves in the 1950's......continued
The Comedy of Errors is one of Shakespeare’s earliest, shortest and most silly plays by far. It’s colored with the best of puns, physical comedy, near-miss meetings by the characters, and classic tunes. Above the Curve presents a ’50s-themed production of this farcical tale of twins accidentally separated at birth.
Shakespeare’s play has been adapted for opera, stage, screen, and musical theatre.
