My husband and I really enjoyed the music and the story. The theatre company did an very good job of translating Pippin to a smaller theater. Go if you get a chance.

The director, choreographer, and actors honored the traditional production while also adding modern elements and given the show more life and depth. It is a dark production with funny moments and strong characters. Standout performances by Sven...continued

I got a ticket last minute using Goldstar and with the general admission at a small theater, there is not a bad seat in the house. I wanted to check this show out given the Broadway revival, and thought the cast was very talented in this local...continued

Excellent production. Well, worth the money in a lovely setting .
All the seats are great and the parking is so easy. I hope people will support this Tony winning musical whihc is now playing in NY.

Some of the singing voices were excellent, as were facial expressions, but it was not "good theater" particularly. I could not figure out why the king's son, who should have had the ability to help create policy to improve the lives of the...continued

It was fun. The highlight was Lewis in a kilt. Awesome legs... ;) The actor who played the king was very good. There are funny moments but it dragged a bit at times. I didn't quite understand some of the costumes at times, it didn't connect. But...continued

Pippin is my favorite musical. This production didn't disappoint. The singing was fabulous. The actor who played Pippin did a better job than the original Traveling Broadway production I saw in SF in the 70's. Well done!

Liked the concept and set design. The talented cast was very high energy and obviously having a lot of fun. Nice way to spend an evening.

My husband and I really enjoyed Pippin. The clever, sparkly dialogue, very good singing and terrific choreography made this a really fun show to see. A great way to spend an evening!

The Goldstar service was great, but the show was not impressive. The interesting topic was presented in shallow way with vulgar scenes. I expected more depth and thought.

Great production! There is constant drama in the plot. It seems there's almost no low time. The Lead Player performed in another musical and he's fantastic. It's a somewhat unfamiliar setting of the play (breaking the 4th wall,) and the mixed of...continued

I didn't know what to expect, as I'd never seen the show before. Great production quality - I particularly enjoyed the costuming, choreography, and light design, as all three are a cut above what I've seen on stage at other companies. Music was...continued

It's a good play for Thursday night. I would suggest them to have more colorful props or costumes. Acting is superb.

The show was okay but not the best. I found some of the scenes were hard to understand but the singing was great. Not my favorite show.
