Very enjoyable production from a really talented cast! Particular standouts were the actors who played Charlemegne and Lewis. The "players" were all excellent singers and dancers. The seats in the theater were very comfortable and roomy. All...continued

The play was really good. We enjoyed al of the music, dancing and different costumes they wore. It was well organized and all of the seats it seems were perfect to view all the stage scenes.

This production was great! Intimate theater, energetic young (for some their first professional production)actors who put their "all" into the play, all were in good voice. It was a fun evening!

Quotes & Highlights

The original Broadway production of _Pippin _ran for more than four years and 1,944 performances, earning 11 Tony nominations.

Description

What does it mean to live an extraordinary life? This is the question that drives Pippin through the adventures of war, sex, politics and love – all the while guided by the malicious hand of the Leading Player. While the Players strive to steer Pippin towards the perfect, theatrically tragic end of his story, Pippin begins to discover what it truly means to be extraordinary in our world.

Full of dance, passion, and Schwartz’s iconic music, _Pippin _is the ultimate theatrical experience that will leave audiences debating what boundaries are crossed for love.
