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

Sorry to say I was dissapointed. The dialogue consisted of too much arguing between the two charracters and was pretty much boring. I was looking forward to this play for a whole week and it ended up being a let down. Never really understood why...continued
Manila the prostitute is a matter-of-fact businesswoman. She provides a commodity for a fee. This isn’t quite enough for her client, who likes to fantasize when he engages in sex. But Manila is also a woman of intellect, which means she is capable of some fantasizing of her own, and it is her fantasies which are the keys to her own fragility and vulnerability. Her business is not so simple, after all.
The revered Italian playwright, novelist, screenwriter and essayist Dacia Maraini is famously a feminist, which means that her treatment of erotic themes extends way beyond the merely titillating. Prostitution provides a dramatic metaphor for various aspects in male-female relationships, including issues of power and domination, as well as the objectification and commercialization of women. Prostitutes have often been protagonists in popular narrative. Maraini goes beneath the surface of popular stereotype to give Manila a human face.
Is “Dialogue Between a Prostitute and Her Client” sexy? Yes. But its political underpinnings also make it thoughtful.
