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

another great, high-quality production by Encore! I only wish they would do their raffle at the end of the show so that people who bought raffle tix could stay and the rest of us could go! Also, there was a "pre-show" by an Encore dance troupe. ...continued
It’s time to let your hair down and dance the night away! Hairspray, Broadway’s musical comedy phenomenon that inspired a major motion picture is coming to the jewel of San Pedro, the Warner Grand Theatre.
It’s 1962 Baltimore and big-haired and boisterous teen Tracy Turnblad wins a spot on the local TV dance program, “The Corny Collins Show.” Overnight Tracy is transformed from outsider to irrepressible teen celebrity. But can an unconventional trendsetter win the heart of heartthrob Link Larkin and integrate a television show without denting her ‘do? Hairspray, winner of eight Tony Awards including Best Musical, is a family-friendly musical piled bouffant high with laughter, romance, and deliriously tuneful songs.
“Hairspray is all about being who you are and not being afraid to stand up for what’s right, all the while pursuing your dreams,” says director Summer Cacciagioni. “It’s what we at Encore stand for every day and we’re so proud to be bringing it to the historic Warner Grand.” Don’t miss such crowd favorites as “You Can’t Stop the Beat,” “Good Morning, Baltimore, “Nicest Kids in Town” and “Without Love."
The production is directed by Summer Dey Cacciagioni with Musical direction by Mike Walker, choreography by Jennifer DiBenedetto, and set design by Marcelo Cacciagioni.
