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

Highly recommended. Some new-show technical difficulties couldn't diminish this powerful show, with several very fine performances. The surprises didn't shock either of us, but that isn't the point. Its an important story told in a way that seems accessible to a much broader audience than "the choir" - and that is rare. Definitely check this one out.

Arrived about 45 minutes before curtain time and had no problem with getting free parking on the side streets. Got our tickets from a wonderfully helpful reception young lady. We had time for a 25 minute walk along Santa Monica Blvd.
