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

Coming off the critically acclaimed, six-month run of the one-person, world premiere hit Caterpillar Soup and 16-week engagement of another one-person show Capture Now, Ruskin is staging a hugely popular comedy that has received rave reviews from The New Yorker, Los Angeles Times, Time Magazine and more.
“We are so proud of the amazing success of our touching and very personal one-person shows, and now we are eager to move back into the realm of a larger-cast, high-energy play,” said Mike Myers, director of Beyond Therapy and Ruskin’s managing director.Beyond Therapy
tells the story of Bruce and Prudence, both in psychotherapy and both neurotic, and their search for love. The play mines big laughs from such subjects as the cult of therapy, dating, pop culture, casual sex, and relationship commitment.
Although frequently done, the play has not been seen on a local professional stage for several seasons.
