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

The actors were excellent. The story was informative and followed the real-life facts.
This play is a great vehicle to promote activism
around this event. I want to see the survivors
cleared and have made it known to my congress person.
Very intimate venue with excellent staff.

Hard working cast -- but the crux of the conflict was played out in the second act - the trial. I believe the whole first act could have been scrubbed in order to focus in greater detail on the conflicts and drama of the trial.
Jolted in the night, San Francisco’s East Bay residents attempted to shield themselves from shattering windows as the sky blazed. 320 people were killed, 400 more were injured, and everything within a one mile radius was destroyed in a flash. 50 survivors were imprisoned for mutiny. If you have not heard about the worst home front military disaster in our history, you will now know why. If you had already known about it, you will find out that there is still much more to the story.
